Egg Bolognese - Big Boy Giggles

Big Boy was discussing what was for dinner. He'd decided he didn't want what was on offer and so had taken himself to the fridge to work out what he did want.

"Egg Bolognese, one of those foil drinks and sausages please Mum" he said
"Egg Bolognese?" I asked, not quite sure what he was thinking
"Yeah!" he answered

I went to the fridge and looked inside.

There on one of the shelves stood the ingredients for my Bolognese, tomatoes, celery, onion, mushrooms and a few other bits and pieces. There was even mince and balanced on top two eggs.

I was now even more confused. Firstly how did Big Boy know what went in my Bolognese recipe. Did he want Bolognese with an egg on the side? Did he want the sauce without the mince and boiled eggs chopped up in the sauce?

"Big Boy" I called "How do you want the eggs served mate?"
"Hmmm. Like yesterday lunchtime, have we got any of those rolls you put the Bolognese in left?"

It was here that it clicked what he was after.

"Big Boy, Egg MAYONNAISE not Bolognese!"

One Egg Bolognese and sausage sandwich later and BB was quite happy.

Happy Big Boy from A Mother's Ramblings
