One Problem When He Cooks

I love that my husband cooks for himself. It is great that he cooks every Saturday night. However, his knowlege and preferences for cooking can get in the way when I cook. An example is this morning when he wanted me to make his scrambled eggs for breakfast. He was in a tizzy that he wouldn't get everything done this morning before an overbooked schedule for work. He is a big time weight lifter and works out most mornings. He really needs protein after his workouts but the protein powders he used to use to make after workout smoothies now give him an allergic reaction. So.. He makes himself scrambled eggs each morning. BUT, they can't be plain, even if I make them. He wants them salted and peppered before cooking and have minced fresh parlsey blended in. Oh well, life is full of tradeoffs like this.

Today's recipe on my website is for sugar snap peas with orange butter.

They say men eat everything but that's so not true. My boyfriend is one of the pickiest eaters I know. Except, he actually prefers everything to be "plain" whereas I can't stand bland food. I usually have to take some of whatever I'm making out for him, and then spice mine up afterwards.

My boyfriend is a little picky as well. He claims he doesn't like creamy foods like alfredo ,mayonaise, too creamy frosting. But he loves tuna salad with mayo in it,ice cream, and my buttercream frosting. He is a strange one. :)

I think I am VERY fortunate, my husband is not pickey at all. In fact if I need something eaten I can't eat any more of or the kids are done with it, I can rely on him to help me out. I think he is just greatful for the food I prepare. I think it's because he grew up in a large family and everone was always contending for the food.

My cooking triumphs
Winning a runner up prize for my lasagne recipe when I worked for the Nestle corporation. (I was a part time R&D assistant for the Willy Wonka Candy Factory)
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make sweet and sour shrimp with deep fried shrimp. Coating came off the shrimp when I put the sauce on. My familiy refused to eat it. We were short of money then and it hurt to waste the food and then go get MacDonald's for dinner.
