Wed Day

Wednesday, August 7, 2013


When the hubs first met me, I was not what you would call an amazing cook. You might not have even called me a good cook. I was adequate for a college girl. I could steam veggies, scramble eggs, and make brownies from a box. The hubs on the other hand was an excellent cook, still is when I give him the chance (he is not, however, what you would call a "tidy" chef). I mean, he came over and rolled sushi for me on our first date. C'mon!

So when we moved in together I resolved to learn, to learn to be able to fix my then boyfriend and now hubby a yummy and satisfying meal. Through a lot of practice, trial and error, and smoke alarms, I improved. I might even venture to say that I'm rather good now.

It's funny, when I was just cooking for myself, I was perfectly happy with a dinner of a few pieces of salami and some steamed veggies - but that changed as soon as I has someone to care for. I know that salami and soggy broccoli just wouldn't cut it for a young man in his 20's, and I didn't want it to. I wanted to cook something tasty, and feel the warmth of his smile as he enjoyed something that I had made. It felt important - it still does. I don't always hit it out of the park, but I'm light years from where I started. It makes me so proud to cook a meal I know he'll enjoy, a healthy one to boot. It makes me feel happy to know that I'll be able to provide this for our future family as well.

  1. That's certainly something I'm working on... I need to learn how to cook something beyond a turkey burger. LOL
