Husband (after being served a simple piece of Garlic Chicken and steamed broccoli for dinner):
I miss your cooking when you're sick!
Isn't he charming? Truly. That tiny little sentiment touched my heart. It was his sweet way of telling me he appreciates what I do. Even though it might be the same dish I have been preparing every other week for years now, it means a lot to him. As wives and moms, we might be tempted to see our daily menu planning as just one part of the same old boring routine. Try to look at it from the eyes of those on the other side of the serving spoon. A sense of their perspective might be enough to inspire you to climb out of the kitchen doldrums. (So could a 2 week break due to bronchitis, but I wouldn't recommend that!)
Last night Husband sat down to Rosemary Chicken, Butternut Squash Mashed Potatoes and hot rolls. Tonight, Turkey Burgers and homemade Sweet Potato Fries! My way of saying "thanks" for letting a girl know she's treasured!
