Meat Heaven

I may be feeding my family a bit too much chicken. Tonight we had barbequed ribs that I cooked in the oven a while before putting them on the grill (OK, Dennis put them on the grill). Yes, I admit, they were delicious. Soft and juicy. The whole family just kept making these yummy yummy noises and practically gave me a standing ovation. Jack declared he was in "Meat Heaven." Don't get too used to it family, tomorrow ~ back to chicken. It's not that I don't love them and want to feed them what they like, but I have always gotten a little confused in the red meat section of the grocery store. I'm not at all sure what is a "good" piece of steak or a bad one and I don't know the prices that well, so I never know if something is a good deal or if I'm the sucker paying 3 times more than I should for a roast!

In other food news, Micheal Phelps apparently needs to eat 10,000 calories a day to fuel himself. 10,000!!!!! That's a lot of cheese. Screw gymnastics, I am so becoming a swimmer.

I'm with you- chicken and hamburg is all I feel safe buying. We have steak when Mark gets it from the restaurant only- hey, it's a treat right?

How long do you think you would need to walk on the treadmill to burn 10,000 calories? I'm not interested.
I would hate to have to pay for Phelps' grocery bill. I am kinda liking the fact my husband chooses to sit on the couch, instead of doing any sort of exercising... makes my grocery bill a little more tolerable... I'm just saying :)

By my calculation you would have to walk on the treadmill at a good clip for 25 hours. Lucky for Phelps the 4 million he is expected to make in endorsement deals should probably cover his bills. What about when he STOPS swimming so much? The day will come when he can't eat 2 large pizza's at once and he will be sorry! Yes, he will be sorry.

Oh ya. Who the H-E-double hockey sticks does Phelps think he is. In like ten years he is gonna be the size of a house... or...he might be a really hot 33 year old.

Yes, if he does what I did & keeps eating as if he were still training, he'll be in for it! Well, that and if he takes a liking to white russians....maybe that was the problem...
