A Friday Treat



I'm often asked if my husband cooks, too. And the answer? A resounding yes. He sure does. Maybe not as often as I do, but quite a bit. Mostly, we cook together - I like having company in the kitchen, even though I'm usually "in charge".

And he's recently gotten into the habit of once a week cooking me dinner, a nice dinner. He plans, shops and cooks, and cleans up. And I really appriciate it - as much as I like cooking, it's nice not to have to do anything at all once in a while.

So, in the picture above, you see a parmawrapped chicken breast filled with basil and halloumi, and a bulgur salad with zucchini. The sauce is a simple mix of yogurt and sambal oelek, with a bit of mustard.



And dessert was poached pears with a quick chocolate mousse. Delicious!

Tonight, I'm off to a conference, but he has big plans for tomorrow night...

I love cooking with others. Or baking. Usually without the tensions involving "Oh if we don't get to the cookies in 15 secs the world will end kinda thing", but just doing stuff. Also makes eating all the more pleasurable.

Did you get your dental woes fixed?

Jessica, sadly, not yet. I have a new appointment for Tuesday. Meanwhile, it's hurting quite a bit, but not so much I can't handle it. It's mostly very very tender, not a very sharp pain. Thanks for asking :)

Give me that husband! ;-) My boyfriend just brakes stuff when he's in the kitchen so I usually make him do easier things like poking the food or pealing potatoes. I wish I too could get such a fancy dinner once a week!

Lucky girl. ;-)
Sad to hear about the tooth though, hope the time pass quickly so you can get painfree.

I really love cooking, but I love to cook much more for people I love, and I love when people cook for me:)
Glad to her that you're both good in the kitchen!!

The cooking habit sounds wonderful. I'm gonna introduce it to my man too...
