The hubs is an amazing cook! He is always coming up with with something new and delicious. He can take random things out of our pantry, when I think we have no food, and come up with this yummy meal. It's not that I can't cook, because I can. I just have to follow a recipe. I also usually wait until I am already hungry to start preparing food so I just go for something quick and simple, which is good sometimes but it limits your options and the same meal gets kinda old after a while.
In college I had easy mac and oreos for dinner every night until junior year when I upgraded to a piece of chicken on the george foreman and white rice every. single. night. I can eat the same thing day after day if I like it but the hubs prefers a little variety (like most people). And I have to say after almost every meal he cooks I claim that I could eat that meal every day for the rest of my life (that's how good it is) and I mean it too. His pork chops are to die for. His ribs? Ah-mazing. Homemade pizza, spaghetti sauce, chilli, rubs, and the list goes on. How did I get so lucky?
Although I will admit that when we first met his idea of a home cooked meal involved pouring a jar of Ragu onto a pile of half-cooked noodles. But after picking through a few burnt meals he really got the hang of it and actually enjoys coming up with new and creative dishes. On the menu for tonight: chicken pesto pasta and french bread. Smells so good!
Nothing like some good food to brighten your day!
