Okay so I have a wicked twisted sense of humour, what can I say.
Happy Birthday B-Dude!
The big 2-4, there's got to be some huge significance to that one in Canuck culture I would think. Any Bob and Doug fans out there? Honestly the theme song is now stuck in my head. I love those hosers way too much. Take off eh!
Okay here's where I dig a big hole for myself. Let the craziness begin...
The dude does not know how to cook. The joys of having a mom who cooks like the tazmanian devil on crack is you never learn how. A blessing and a curse I suppose. So in the spirit of B-Dude's birthday and impending independence I've put together a collection of recipes chicks dig. *hole getting bigger* He'll have 10 recipes to choose from when he wants to cook for his date...er, dates....er...date...ah....mommy headache just thinking about it. So in an effort to be all cool and laid back I'm sending him off with recipes to help him score with the ladies. I mean points, score points. Seriously, anyone have a shovel?
Puleeze do not stop reading. I would apologize but you all know this stuff happens often. The mama has a very twisted sense of humour.
Okay so as you all know we are getting prepped for our big road trip out west where we will drop off our son and return home without him. I am not a happy mama. I like my kids close. Like moving next door is too far. But he's doing his thang, and I'm trying to be all cool and okay with it. I'm not but it's all good. Apparently from what I hear I'll get over it. Whatever...
I want him to be little again. Not gonna lie.
But that time has come and gone. They grow up and you just hope you've done a good job raising them. You hope they learned valuable lessons and remember what you've taught them. They grow up. He's all old and mature now.
I've done my job. I've raised him well. I think any young lady would be lucky to have B-Dude cook for her. I mean he's a total catch. A total ladies man.
So here you go B-Dude. A variety of easy recipes chicks will dig. And your mom will dig her hole to China by the time this post is over. I bet B-Dude is so proud of me right now. I mean seriously, who else's mom does this kind of thing right. That, my friends, is dedication to your hooligan. Enjoy the recipes B-Dude, hope you score...points. Geez! Some people are so sensitive.
Lunie's Top 10 Recipes Chicks Dig:
Yup, keeping it classy for B-Dude's birthday. It's a mom thing. We hate to embarrass our kids and always keep things from getting too wild and crazy. The voice of reason, the mature one who keeps a level head and makes sure the kids behave and act appropriately. We guide them, teach them right from wrong and help them keep their morals intact. Oh wait, that's nuns, not moms. Sorry, my bad!
Happy Birthday B-Dude! Go forth and...
okay I can't even finish that sentence.
He shoots, he....
good lord, someone hit me with that shovel, I beg ya!
Toodles and smoochies! xx
Happy birthday, B-Dude! Here's hoping those photos trigger some sort of internet frenzy, and you finally get picked up by a creepy modelling agency.
*falls down laughing*

Great post - not in the slightest embarrassing, I'm sure... Personally I'd eat any of those, major points are gained for cooking at all, never mind turning out something as awesome as these recipes.
Right! Total not embarrassing. Luckily he's as nuts as me and thought it was hilarious. My daughter would kill me if I did this to her. Lol. I gave him my wok cuz he's convinced he'll be eating lots of rice and ramen. Poor guy.

I love this. This is awesome. I would totally do this to my brother but he'd def. murder me (and he's bigger than me even though he's younger soooo).
Lol, my daughter would string me up by my ankles outside if I did this to her. Luckily my son is a whackadoodle like his mom.
🙂 You asked for a shovel? 😉
Really funny post. Although steak? Deep dish pizza? Guy food, IMO. Anyway, Happy Birthday to B-Dude!
Oh hell no, some of us chicks actually like to eat. I eat more pizza than the dudes in the house. Most woman just pretend to eat like ladies then go home and demolish pizza right out of the box over the sink. True story!
Happy Birthday! Many happy returns...and having met "B-Dude" I can testify....you DID raise him right. Polite, articulate and adorable!
Thanks Ann. He is a cool dude. Lucky for me he also shares my sense of humour. xx

OMG, girly, have you been to Twitter?!?! #B-Dude is totally trending... right along with #MyMomsDead! #Creepy
I tried to leave you a note on your wall but it wouldn't let me. When I read this initially I thought you were seriously. Then I was like okay it's funny when the 25 regulars read it but I think he might kill me if the world saw it. Lol. Thank goodness you were kidding. I could not stop laughing at your comment. I almost made mini-me late for work cuz I had to read it one more time. xx
My mom also sent me to Calgary with a book of recipes. Not quite the same kind, though... And rest assured, "B-Dude" will be around several people who are geniuses in the kitchen, so he's bound to pick up a few things!
Lol Kellie, after I hit publish I thought "what have I done". Then I shrugged and went on with my day. It's a huge relief to know he'll have some help out there. The dude once tried to put a can of pasta in my microwave, still in the can. I'm mildly terrified. Thanks for stopping by. In all honesty I'm so happy to know he has friends out there cuz this whole across the country thing is scaring the bejesus out of me.
Love the picture of the two of you a few years back - so pretty. If he made me either of those last two dishes, I would be his. Oh, and the deep dish pizza thing.
Awe thanks. I like that photo too. One of my faves. I also like the one of us making the growling face while at Disney, people in the store thought we were nuts.
Awww.. you're a good Mama!! Lovely Birthday Post! Your son is so lucky to have you and I'm sure you feel the same way about him. I love that you gave him recipes to please what ever "chick" he ends up with....love the rabbit food chick. LOL! Wishing him the very best birthday!!
I cannot help myself, even his farewell has to be twisted and weird. I love that he doesn't embarrass easy. Lol.
Thanks Ramona, You are a sweetheart and I appreciate it so much.

Kim I nearly peed my pants reading this. I have two sons and one day this will be me...embarassing the nonsense out of them.
I do love your variety of dinner selections for B-Dude (and that 3 of the 10 are pizza...wouldn't be a lunatic love if it didn't include pizza).
The most eye catching is the salad, but the most interesting I think it the cauliflower pizza. That is twice I've seen someone do this...I think I need to go get some cauliflower !
Best of luck to B-Dude as he conquers and scores!
Let me know when you're ready, I have lots of advice and suggestions. Once when he was younger he wandered off in a store to a section I said not to. So I had them make an announcement on the loudspeaker, I had them call him little B-Dude Bee and told them to say his mommy was waiting at the front and really worried about him. He was like 14 so when he came up and everyone started laughing he about died. I have a strange sense of humour so he's gotten used to it. Mini-me on the other hand does not take it as well. Lol.
Cuz honest chicks admit they love pizza right! Never trust a chick who eats salad when there is pizza available.
The cauliflower pizza is really cool. And tastes great. I was sceptical but it was delish.
Right. A lady with the same sense of humour, I like it.
