Message to my husband

Dear Chris,

I am making an actual dinner tonight. Dinner that includes real ingredients that I have seasoned and cut up with my own two hands, and not just ingredients that come out of boxes or bags that include microwaving instructions on the side. I think this more than makes up for the fact that the recipe called for a teaspoon of chili powder and I accidentally put in a tablespoon. You like things spicy, right? I also think it makes up for the fact that I put tofu in it. Hey, I like tofu, and you were the one complaining about needing to eat more protein.

I just wanted you to be aware of these facts before you got home, so that you could be sure to react appropriately to the beautiful, and possibly even very nearly edible dinner that I have lovingly prepared for you. You may practice your reaction in the garage for a few minutes before coming in if necessary.

Love,
Beth

"You may practice your reaction in the garage for a few minutes before coming in"

I am rolling on the floor laughing...

I liked the practicing your reaction in the garage line the best too!!! Thats just a little more chili powder than was called for, it will be good.

hey...you get points for nearly edible! and at least it was extra chili powder and not, say, salt or pepper.

um...also, can i come for dinner?

Hahaha!!! My husband and I need to get us some blogs...

This is perfect. And I am laughing so hard the tears are flowing!

Chris really shouldn't mind extra chili powder...spices are said to be an aphrodisiac.

Very nice of you to warn him :-D

I am dying over here, Beth you crack me up!

Hey, you cooked with a toddler and also pregnant...he should massage your feet since you were on them all day cooking for him. A little extra spice never killed anyone.

Very nice of you to warn him that he needs to be appreciative.

LOVE it! I'm so with you there.

LOVE this post. As for the spiciness, just be sure to have some rice or other carb to neutralize it somewhat.

I should know - I lived in Korea for two years! lol

:)

I'm gonna need to see the video from the garage.

Just don't add a tablespoon of Cayenne instead of an eighth as i did. or maybe it was the sherry(hic), just a thought. Check out my blog for the infamous Cream of Crab recipe I borrowed from Mama Cooks!

Yum. Triply spicy.

Hahaha! I'll just have to check his blog to see his response.

OHHHHHHH Beth, I can totally related... only mine was supposed to be 3 tsp. and instead I put in 3 tbsp. - even worse I was taking it to someone's house for a Super Bowl party... EMBARASSING!

How awesome is it that this happened to be the day I brought home roses?

Really cute letter ;)

You are hilarious. I am totally going to use portions of this letter on my own husband. One of these days, when I cook for him and don't open packages to combine and heat.

What exactly did you cook? Sounds terribly interesting.

Fess up, please. How did it go?

You are one smart cookie. I would try this except Bryan would never check my blog before leaving work.

Simply... you crack me up. Probably because it all sounds vaguely familiar.

This seriously cracked me up. Thanks, I needed that.
