Crime and Punishment

Scene of the crime:

Lunch time at this spot at the dining room table.

The Crime:

A traumatized sister running for a drink of water in sobbing hysterics.

The evidence:

1. Open bottle Dave's Gourmet Insanity Sauce (aka "The Original Hottest Sauce in the Universe")

2. An entire plate of quesadillas with reddish spots the exact same color as the aforementioned "insanity sauce".

3. A giggling brother

The punishment:

Make a new quesadilla to replace the damaged one or suffer with steamed brussel sprouts for dinner for the next three weeks.

What! We're out of tortillas? Too bad. Here's a recipe for tortillas from scratch. Good luck with that.

The result:

The king of quesadillas! At an inch and a quarter thick, it's hard to argue with this lumpy mess of cheese and tortilla.
Cami's damaged taste buds have since recovered nicely and the younger kids have started requesting Spencer to make their tortillas/quesadillas from scratch now too.

Brothers can be so bothersome! I love the punishment though. What a great mom you are!

Jaden Paige said...

HAHA! Great punishment! I love that idea.... Another one to store in my reserves for later... Muhahaha :)

Denise said...

Sounds like Spencer needs to cook more often! Cause when you make tortillas like that, no way is anyone leaving the table hungry!

Steve said...

Truly a boy after my own heart! Great job of tormenting your baby sister.

And your torilla/quesadilla looks so yummy.

Love, Grandpa

Now there's the makings for a good seminary video - sin, repentance, and everyone's happy in the end. Oh, and how could I forget the ever patient and all ever-wise mom meeting out justice with unfeigned love? Lara, you rock!

Cami said...

Eating that spicy quesadilla was so worth the watching him make another one from scratch.

Love this post! It looks a little familiar, only our hot sauce is called "Mad Dog". Too bad I didn't think of such a great punishment. What great lessons learned by all, and I got a kick out of Cami's comment!
