I’ll have to apologize for not posting regularly. I had a bad case of watermelon in the belly. Now I’m blaming it on this:
This is my second baby and I’m doing the déjà vu dance in my head. Probably the biggest piece of it has to do with nursing. Mother’s milk is supposed to be the most perfect food there is. Why, then, is it so difficult to prepare?
How many other recipes out there have entire books dedicated to them? Professionals to help mothers with the serving of it? An entire gamut of products dedicated to the best possible dining experience?
There’s latching and engorgement and cracking and let down and don’t eat too much of this and switch feeding and on-demand and please, please, please don’t wake up yet.
You may be lucky enough to be a professional at this recipe right off. I’m still studying technique and serving it charred.
It may be the world’s most perfect food, but the imperfect chef is tearing her hair out in the kitchen.
The customer, however, is still pretty perfect. And (mostly) keeping his criticism to himself.
