Anniversary And Quick Meals





Today, my wife and I celebrate 37 years of marriage. Hard to believe it has been that long, but the numbers don't lie! If you have been married any length of time, you learn it is a journey of evolving... You will not be the same person you were when you got married! You learn to not sweat the small stuff. You learn forgiving. You learn there are certain traits in the other person that probably will never change, so accept them. This ends today's sermon, the collection plate will come next!
We had a Black Forest ham and baby Swiss toasted sandwich Monday- neither of us too hungry! The photo of the Klondike bar is a funny story- wife bought them and ate two- probably would have eaten all six without telling me she bought them!
Tuesday, it was a version of a pattie melt..I like to add blue cheese and some hot sauce to mine! I also gave her a box of candy from a great local candy maker, Sweetlands- which we got into promptly!
I can't post the food we're going to have today, as it will be in a later post!
Thunderstorms again last night, and cable TV is out for who knows how long...

Chef E said...

I still cook him the food he likes, and tell him I am sorry when I wake up in a grumpy mood- then he pays me back the same respect- it works, and we never go a day without a kiss hello or goodnight...

blueviolet said...

Happy Anniversary!! 37 years is a long time!!! I can appreciate your wife's sneaky Klondike bar eating. :)

buffalodick said...

Heff- I feed her and it works!
Pat- Ham and cheese is a great sandwich!
Pink-Thank you!
Ake- We've known each other 40 years- wow! Where does the time go?
Brian- Like the song says: "It's cheaper to keep her"!
Chef- We still have our moments, but most of the anger was beat out of us by Life...
BlueV- She loves her sweets!

Happy anniversary! I always say that if you marry someone expecting them to change, you will be disappointed. They are who they are, and at the core will remain the same. For such an easy concept, a lot of people just don't get it! Enjoy your Klondike bar, if you get one.

buffalodick said...

Marjie- I think I got one.. Marry the right one, and you don't have to play silly games!

G-Man said...

"What would you do-ooo-oo for a Klondike bar"

Stay married to the same woman for 37 years!!!!!

You WIN Brother!!!!

Tracie said...

Buff,

Congrats!! To you and the Mrs. Buff. I salute anyone who can have a long successful marriage. Me and the old boy have made it 28 years together and neither of us are dead yet. (S)

Even the klondike bar looks good and I am not a big fan of ice cream unless it's white and loaded with fresh berries. The sandwiches and candy are to die for. Anything ooey and gooey is the dish for me. I do want to dunk every sandwich I eat though. Must be the Irish in me or maybe the latent cop.

Isn't that goofy Mel (Marmite) the nut? I so love her humor.
J-

buffalodick said...

John- Life beats the anger out of you...
Marmy- Last time I made a woman sweat, is when I made cut the grass... :)
J.J.- Thanks! You'll get there before you know it..

Lea Ann said...

Congratulations to your and your wife BD! Happy Anniversary!

JihadGene said...

Way to go LOOONG time!!!
Congratulations to you both...the better half and the lucky half!!!

buffalodick said...

Lea Ann- Thanks! It has its moments..
Gene- Youngest gave us a card- says glad you met your better half- now you two figure out who is the better half!

Jen said...

37 years is quite an achievement! I haven't met many I'm willing to put up with for 37 days...

Congratulations!

buffalodick said...

Jen-I'm a load, but I can be nice too..I made good money, and I'm a good cook, and I'm pretty funny..after that, I go downhill! She is patient, which is what I need...I never grew up! My kids say they will never breed while I am alive..they don't want me teaching their kids scams and poker when they are 5 years old... :)

Just telling it like it is said...

I would have to drink wine until the cable came on again..wait I do that anyway never mind!

Odat said...

Happy Anniversary!
Peace

buffalodick said...

Darngirl- Screwed around on computer, which was still working!
odat- Thanks!

Katherine Aucoin said...

Happy Anniversary to you and Mrs. Buff! We've learned that buying Klondike Bars and hiding them from each other is what makes our marriage work, espeically if you're lucky enough to find your spouse's hiding place ;-)

buffalodick said...

Katherine- You have to try the dove bar minis- they are even better!

Vickie said...

Happy Anniversary, BD! What a milestone! I love the Klondike bar story. I used to do that with cheescake. :)

buffalodick said...

Vick- I always make and freeze a cheesecake, so we don't run out!

UBERMOUTH said...

You even make a sandwich melt look exotic.

Happy Anniversary !
