As requested, this post is about M.

As in, “Honey, what should I write about??”

“I think you should write about how awesome your husband is.”

OK. I certainly will try.

He is pretty awesome.

He has made me dinner every night that he has been home during his summer holiday (he is a middle school teacher). And, it is always beautifully plated. And he always presents it to me from such a great height. So I have to wait until it is lowered to my eye-level to see what it is. Did I also mention that he never tells me what he is cooking?

I also am never allowed into the kitchen. Ever. While he is cooking. All cooking (by him) that goes on in our house is a surprise. And it really is! I tend to cook the same way. It’s a whole 2 veg 1 protein type of meal with me. I make home-cooking. Shepherds pie, mashed potatoes, steamed veg, casserole…. things of that nature. It is all I can cook.

I cannot do reductions.

I sometimes burn steaks just right.

I can make magical Vincent-meals.

I make a wicked Seafood salad (that doe not include mayo). Oh, and can I ever bake….

I can’t, however, make Quinoa, risotto, a proper blackened steak of any kind. Or spell that word right. Ever. I never know what wine goes with what.

I just drink red. I figure its got to fit in there somehow….

The ceremony that goes one with M’s meals is something to be seen, heard, tasted and enjoyed.

Tonight it was Pepper Pork Tenderloin, on a bed of greens with fresh peaches with a home-made Italian reduction drizzled…everywhere…

So here’s to M’s delicious cooking, my complete spoiledness, V’s future spoiledness (once we have properly developed his taste-buds, that is), our new house and future appliances that M will cook delicious things on.

Handsome husband, oh how I adore thee…. especially…well… all the time. Can’t lie there. You are pretty awesome. And put up with my OCD cleaning. And my OCD list-writing. Oh, and my OCD cleaning.

love you. xo

    Your husband is wonderful. I have also lucked into a gem family man who can cook – although don’t tell him but no where near M’s abilities!! I just wanted to tell you we have the same philosophy about wine. Just red, it does fit somehow! Glad you have such a wonderful life, you deserve it. You are a wonderful person. You were such a big part of my life for years, such a great dependable friend, I’m glad you have such good things in your life. I know I’m a sap, but I just feel so lucky lately to know such special people. Our next family trip is to Disney world, whenever that may be, looking forward to seeing you!

      Tracey, you are so sweet… I am glad that you and I are on the same page re: wine. This is an important thing to know about a friend, especially since we are anticipating your arrival in FLA sometime soon. And, I am forever glad that we reconnected πŸ™‚ Makes me quite a happy girl… xo

    Sounds like a winner! I think I need to spend more time talking about how great my husband is as well. Enjoy the rest of his summer break! πŸ™‚
