Yes Me!

Today I experienced a first, Yes Me. After getting off work, I walked in the door. Immediately I smelled something. It was something good! I was caught off guard and confused because it smelled like food. Todd, my sweet husband was standing at the sink. With a dazed look on my face I said "What do I smell?" This is what I smelled:Okay now I know that all of you bloggers out there have a husband that cooks for you on a regular basis, but did I mention before that this was a FIRST? Seriously my husband does not cook. EVER! I remember once I came home from work and he had grilled steak. So I will give him that. But honestly that was so long ago that I cant remember how many years it has been. (Now he does tons of other sweet and helpful things, he just doesnt cook.) Every now and then when I am leaving for work on his day off, I will say "You do supper." to which he will usually plan supper. He is sweet to tell me not to cook supper, he has already planned to get something out. Today was one of those times. When I was leaving I said "cook supper." We both laughed and went on our ways. It NEVER occurred to me that he would actually cook! He said that when I said that, he decided to look in my cook book. (The one I told you about that I was going to organize and ended up making cookies instead.) He found my (well his moms recipe) for chili and whipped it up. It was really great! I think maybe even better than mine! I was so proud of him. I think he was proud of himself as well. I told him that we can have chili night once a month! Josh of course disagreed because he doesnt like chili - No surprise there, he doesnt like a whole lot. Anyway just thought I would share my wonderful surprise with you all. I still cant believe my husband cooked supper for me! Yes Me!

How sweet. I think it just rocks when a husband cooks. Kuddos to him. :)

Yay, Todd! I am SO proud of him! I remember when you said you'd settle for him just doing chicken nuggets or fish sticks. I would have probably gone into shock, but you are cool enough to go for the camera. Amazing.
You know what I REALLY think?! This whole time, 25.5 years, he's just been PRETENDING he didn't know how!!! Yep, that what I think! :)
