I have come to the sad conclusion that in spite of working in the food industry I am pathetic when it comes to making dinner. Sweet Husband and I don’t take turns when it’s time to cook, it just happens that when the one doesn’t feel like cooking the other one does….it works for us. More often than not, we are both in the kitchen working together, that too works for us. Sweet Husband is very elaborate and will shop for specific ingredients and create a mouth watering meal that is almost always top notch. Grilled chicken with Thai Peanut Sauce is one of his specialties and now one of my favorites. Grilled chicken on a bed of sticky rice, layered with slightly steamed spinach, topped with Thai Peanut Sauce. I generally can’t get enough of this meal, it’s a lovely combination of rich spicy green tastes.
I’ve just gotten lazy when it comes to cooking. When I know that Sweet Husband has had a hard day I’ll choose from “Carla’s Two Syllable Dinners”, recipes sure to win over even the pickiest of eaters…or not!

I’ve grown weary of food, at least for the time being. Most of the time we eat out of habit, because it’s that time of day. Generally we’ve run low on fuel and it’s time to replenish. I go through phases when that’s all I can think of is food, so be on the lookout for more tasty blogs post, but right now, not so much.
I do have to point out that regardless of who is cooking, the ingredients are always fresh. We never even go down the frozen isle in the grocery store. That’s a good thing too as most our freezer space is taken up with samples for my work. As for canned food, we have some tomato sauce, or beans, but nothing major. You won’t see Hamburger Helper at our house or Hot Pockets either, it just won’t happen.
