Normal pre-dinner conversations...

"What are we having for dinner?"

"I don't know. What do you want?"

"I don't know What do we have?"...

Pre-dinner conversations when I actually HAVE a plan

"What's the package of chicken for?"


"What are we having?"


Insert unhappy face.

"Can we have fajitas?"

"See, this is why I never come up with a plan! We can, but we don't have any peppers, and I am not going to the store."

Thoughtful pause. "I LIKE curry. I just don't want it TONIGHT."

"OK, we can have fajitas but they won't have peppers in them."

"Maybe when you take the dog out"....

The same conversation goes on at my house. He hates it that I don't make a menu and post it, and I hate it that my menu regularly gets blown out of the water. Therefore, why make a menu?! Makes sense to me!! PS I HATE cooking! if I could I'd have an Ecuadorian lady in to cook only--I'll gladly skip a maid and do the cleaning myself if only someone would, Please, cook for me!!!! :o)

see - clever jenn married a man who cooks!
He enjoys it, he putters around in the kitchen, and I he is a GOOD cook too. I do have to clean the kitchen afterwards, but it's a small price to pay for not having to cook....OK, it's a medium price, because he's terribly messy when he cooks, but still, better than my cooking which quite frankly just doesn't make anyone happy.

I actually enjoy the cooking (most of the time) Troy cleans up, and I would much rather deal with the conversations than do that :) I'll come and cook for both of you if you pay my air fare!
