The wife and daughters had a meeting right after school and would be very late getting home so I used this opportunity to do a little cooking. I really enjoy cooking but I don’t get the opportunity to do so. I get home after my wife and usually she has supper cooked when I get home in the evenings. When we first were married she used to cook a lot every meal. She’s part Italian and she cooked just like one. Now, she does the bare minimum. It may be chicken fingers one night, hamburger helper the next but she does cook. I’m not complaining mind you, she does work and she has to put up with a lot being a elementary school teacher. I’d be happy with a PBJ sandwich but she feels that she must cook something. Tonight we had grilled pork chops, fried potatoes and salad. IT was late when we all sat down to eat but it was good, even if I have to say so myself.
There’s simply not enough time in the day when you have a lot planned. On weekends I try to cook for dinner because 1. to give my wife a break and 2. to try new things and to break the regular routine of my wife’s cooking. Today I went grocery shopping and spent over $50 on supplies for tonight’s meal and tomorrow’s breakfast. We had grilled BBQ chicken breasts, fried potatoes and Dutch Oven Blackberry Cobbler for supper. Tomorrow morning we’re having pancakes with sausage and biscuits.
What was also planned but didn’t have time was to go on a bike ride. Just simply didn’t have the time. Maybe tomorrow after breakfast I’ll go on a ride but I also want to go find that waterfall that I’ve heard so much about. It’s about an hour drive from here. We shall see.
