Throw a Little Sand on the Barbie

Oh, yes, Jadon is at it again, and this time, he decided to help out with the cooking for Mother’s Day.  We had the moms and grandmas over to our house for a cook-out, and while outside with daddy while he was grilling, Jadon decided that he would help “cook,” too, so he grabbed a grubby little paw full of sand and threw it over all the burgers that were cooking.

One might think that lunch plans were changed, burgers were ruined, etc.  But, oh no…there’s more.  I only learned about his little culinary adventure when, while standing around the kitchen with everyone, my mom makes this horrible face while eating.  (Not the sort of face you want to see when someone is eating at your house.)  So, I asked if something was wrong.  And she said, “Well, not really.  The burger tastes good, but it’s a little gritty.”
I’m sure I had a puzzled look on my face, when Jason piped in and said nonchalantly, “Oh, that’s just the sand.”  He even did this with a little wave of his hand, as if to say ‘No big deal.’
Mortified, I asked “WHAT SAND?”
“The sand that Jadon threw on the grill.  I brushed most of it off, and I cooked the burgers a little longer to try to burn it off.”
Really, really mortified, I replied, “You can’t burn sand off burgers!  It’s sand!”
So, not only did Jadon spice up the burgers with his own special seasoning straight from the turtle sandbox, Jason went ahead and served the burgers.  But wait…there’s more.  After feeding them to everyone, did he throw them away?  Oh, no he did not.  He bagged them up, put them in the refrigerator, and saved them for left-overs!  So, if anyone is hungry, we have several sand burgers left…feel free to swing by anytime!
I’m sure those who were in attendance will be rushing to get to our future gatherings.
