Birthday cook

Did the inaugural cook on the Kettle. Bryce turned 13 yo today and for his birthday he wanted smoked meatloaf and hasselback potatoes. The meatloaf was a “Italian” meatloaf with mozzarella pearls in it. Got that idea from Sowsage Sowsage on his challenge meatloaf he did. Had a marinara sauce on it. The potatoes had bacon and Gouda cheese in them and cheddar on top.

He enjoyed his meal. And racked up on Arkansas Razorbacks gear. Thanks for looking.

Looks great! I remember 13. Hormones Raging, first Whiskers growing, noticing Girls are getting Cuter, and having no idea what to do about it. Seeing how far I could push my Parents before Dad reminded me who has the Bigger Cajones!
Yep, a Fun time in a Boys Life!...JJ

Sowsage Sowsage The mozz was excellent! Bryce said that its a requirement in meatloaf now.
chef jimmyj chef jimmyj Thinking the hormones hit harder now than when we were kids! I have to remind him on occasion that eventually he'll probably be bigger than me, But i'm a simple country boy that dont know when to quit. And I'll keep coming til I cant. But for the most part he's a good kid.

I have 3 Daughters! All Daddy's Girls until they hit 12-13. From that point, I didn't know nothing, I couldn't do nothing and if I spoke it just sounded like Blah, Blah, Blah.
To this day, oldest hitting 30, if they call and I pick up, I get..." Where''s Mom? " No HI Dad, nothing.
I think Boys are different. I tested Dad, but we did everything together, from cooking to Boy Scouts and any projects, even as an adult, I was close to my Dad!...JJ
