the week my husband cooked most of the meals

posted on: Thursday, March 7, 2013

I cook dinner much of the time. It’s just naturally how it happens. I don’t have a 9-5 at the moment, so I gladly cook for my hard-working husband. He cleans the dishes and the kitchen post-dinner so it’s a fair trade, I say. He does cook occasionally, I mean, he used to be “Chef Adam”.

He actually worked as a pastry chef at Emeril’s restaurant at Universal City Walk in Orlando. The first time I developed a little crush on him was when he cooked for a large group of our friends. I was highly impressed! Guys our age didn’t really cook such fanciful meals. So he can definitely cook, that guy and that’s a talent of his I don’t get to reap the benefits from enough.

This week Adam seemed to get a new energy for cooking and wanted to try some new recipes. Needless to say, I was more than happy to oblige.

I must say, I think he’s after my job. We’ve been eating quite well this week. Oh just the best baked chicken tenders I’ve ever had, the most delicious turkey burgers and lasagna with pancetta, mushrooms and ground turkey. It just hit me today how spoiled I’ve been this week. Spoiled!

He mentions starting a food blog on occasion and, well, I think he should. He’s a culinary hero in this household. Thank you for the delicious food the last few nights, husband. You make the cleaning after dinner well worth it.
