Hopefully you all enjoyed your Valentine’s Day. Hubby & I had a very enjoyable evening where we both learned a few things.
- Hubby learned that he can actually take on new tasks if he puts his mind to it.
- He learned that he has kitchen skills that he believed to be nonexistent
- He learned that it really is quite simple to make me happy…………….
- I learned that hubby can, in fact, go to the grocery without calling me 42 times
- I learned that hubby does indeed know where to find our frying pans
- I learned that hubby CAN do more than boil water to make pasta noodles
You see, my one request for Valentine’s Day, was that hubby cook me dinner. I think in our 10 years of being together this has happened maybe 3 times. Now, hubby will likely dispute this by quoting the times where he boiled pasta noodles and opened a jar of sauce. Or the times where he took frozen taquitos out of the freezer and placed them in the toaster oven. I, on the other hand, consider “making dinner” to encompass some sort of fresh ingredients being placed in a pan or an oven and combined to create a meal with multiple food groups. Obviously we may not agree on the definition of cooking but I digress……………
Anyhow, hubby scoured the internet for a recipe, he went to the grocery store and bought all the necessary ingredients and then…. ALL BY HIMSELF…. he whipped up a fantastic meal. We dined on chicken breasts stuffed with spinach, garlic, pine nuts & raisins, finished with a balsamic,dijon drizzle and accompanied by steamed broccoli, zucchini and cous cous. It was AWESOME! And I can honestly say he did it without asking me 900 questions. He found the pans by himself, he sautéed, steamed & baked by himself. He even cleaned up the kitchen afterwards. It was almost like I traded in my hubby and got a loaner for Valentine’s Day! Let’s just say I was a very happy wife!
As I mentioned, I think we both learned a lot yesterday….
I learned that I truly do have a wonderful husband….. even though sometimes, he’s deserving of a smack in the head. He (hopefully) learned the pleasure of cooking dinner for your wife……….
AND, beyond all that, I have to say that I probably learned something far more important than anything that hubby learned.
I learned that he’s full of BS when he tells me there’s something he “can’t do”. Thanks again hubby…… now, What’s for dinner?
On a slightly separate note, I found the perfect Valentine’s Day card for hubby that I couldn’t help but share with you all. Inside it says “Honey, it’s the little things you do that make me love you”
