It had been a lazy winter day (day off for me, slow work day for my husband) when he got the idea in his head that he was going to make me dinner. “Of course that would be okay” I said to him. It was just another one of his brilliant ideas. This meant more play time for me and it let him exercise his creative rights.
Let me just tell you, his creativity was spot on this night. He fixed a wonderfully delicious meal that I couldn’t have done any better myself. He incorporated all the things I love into this fab meal for me 🙂
This is just part of the stuff he came home from the store with above. Never fails when he goes to the store for a “few things” it turns out to be a mega shopping spree for him. At least this time he didn’t come home with that ever so addicting box of chocolate lover’s Entenmanns’s donuts or a tall jar of marshmallow cream! Which he has done before and over the next several days I’ve proceeded to eat it all.
This nutty grainy loaf of wheat bread was a great purchase by the husband. I love whole wheat bread with some crunch!
For Christmas I received a garlic press. This was his virgin attempt at pressing garlic to get some fresh garlic for the homemade pasta sauce. Peel, squeeze, puuush!
And the finished product: Homemade meaty tomato sauce over whole wheat pasta drenched in freshly shredded mizithra cheese! Have you ever tried mizithra cheese? It is so good. I first fell in love with it at the Spaghetti Factory. And now that we know they sell it in our local grocery store we buy it often, so delicious! And of course that whole grain bread that was turned in to toasted garlic bread to accompany our Italian meal!Pour on the cheese! Al dente whole wheat pasta just the way I like it with a thick meaty sauce and some salty mizithra cheese on top!
Grazie amore per sapermi amare
What’s a good home-cooked meal without dessert? Once again, my husband did not disappoint with this one.
So simple, yet so delicious.
A big scoop of organic vanilla Rice Dream with fresh rasberries, blueberries and blackberries.
Fantastically sweet, creamy and juicy!
Gotta love that man of mine 🙂
A few movies I’ve seen recently are “Little Fockers” and “Easy A”. Both were good for some belly laughs 🙂 And we watched the documentary “Boys Of Fall.” What a great testament to football season!
What is the best movie you’ve seen recently?
