In contemplating my first entry rather than posting something that showcases me as this professional domestic engineer I decided to show you what happened last night. While it was less than perfect of a meal it was a special moment in our household that I would like to remember.
My husband and I were thinking of bringing our son to Grandpa and Grandma's and going out to eat. While this was a grand idea my hubby was completely worn out from work and ready to just relax and not think about plans or whatnot that would go along with a date night.
So we stayed in and I cooked up a vegetarian meal of black bean spanish rice, corn on the cob, and "Deluxe creamed peas" (compliments of my old school Better Homes and Garden's book "Low cost cooking" that I found at a thrift store). This was a 4 pot meal. I am not sure if I would make the exact meal over again for that reason. My hubby was kind enough to help me with the dishes afterward. *insert heart flutter*
I ended up mixing the spanish rice and creamed peas together on my plate. I tend to mix the sweet and salty together. Like putting guacamole on my mashed potatoes. Yum! Don't knock it until you try it.
Of course i can not forget the cutest part of our meal. Mr. "I don't want to take a nap" crashed after eating his corn on the cob.
