‘I love this. Sometimes my darlings have a craving for the not-so-normal for lunch, and we embrace it. Your wife is fine!’ wrote a woman.
Another said: ‘This looks great, you did a great job. Shrug your shoulders for the haters. They don’t count! All I see in this photo is an expression of love for your son.’
Others begged the mother to come and cook for their children as well.
“What the hell, we’re dying here of processed quick fixes. I can hardly cook and have no time. You’re doing great, but a little jealous!” said one woman.
