It Was My Birthday, And Wife Did The Cooking!
Normally our deal is I cook! I like to, am half way good at it, and, well.. It works for us! As it was my birthday, she seemed determined to make me the recipient of a good meal, instead of being the cook. What ever you may think, the Goob can cook pretty good when cornered.. We had a delightful plate of angel hair pasta, with seared scallops in a Parmesan/White wine/Garlic/Basil sauce that was delightful! Steamed broccoli, that went with the not-too-thick sauce perfectly. Dessert was purchased at a local Dutch eatery- a Coconut Cream Pie, which I am partial to- even though not a favorite of son or wife who ate some anyway!
It's a joy when others do simple things for you that you appreciate. Remember to compliment your cook, and do not take this for granted! You cooks be sure to appreciate their compliments, if you ever want to get any more of them!
