The Kitchen Is Always Open
My wife is only four months pregnant, but yet she wakes up hungry in the middle of the night and asks me to cook her four course meals! Ok, maybe not four course meals, but usually a sandwich or a fried egg. She says it’s the baby that’s hungry, but I’m suspicious. Is this normal behavior or is she just taking advantage of me and her pregnancy? I’m starting to feel like a short order cook!

I hope your last name is Sharples, because you my friend are one step away from opening your own diner in Phoenix Arizona. Trust me, it’s quite normal to have your pregnant wife who is only four months pregnant ask you to turn your kitchen into a greasy spoon. Personally my kitchen turns into Food Network’s Kitchen Stadium after midnight, with the only exception that Alton Brown isn’t standing in the corner giving me a play-by-play of how poorly I’m plating my Trader Joe’s frozen chocolate bananas. So cook away Mel, playing Cat Cora in the middle of the night is par for the course when you’re expecting a new baby. Just cross your fingers that your wife doesn’t like your cooking and tell you to kiss her grits.
