The Husband has been a total doll, taking the reins in the kitchen this weekend, knowing I have been feeling crappy. Last night, he made steak with rice and black beans. Tonight, it was a huge roast pork and rice with red beans and tomatoes.
As much as he shakes his head and laughs at some of my food quirks, he still goes along with them. With meat that doesn’t have a gravy or sauce or that’s not heavily flavored, I tend to make a little sauce of ketchup and mayo to dip it in. Nicholas, much to The Husband’s chagrin, has picked up on this habit too. When The Husband fixed me a plate for dinner tonight, he even included a small bowl with my special sauce. Gotta love him.
Keeping it short tonight, because I want to finish planning the menu for Thanksgiving, and the meals leading up to it. But before I sign off, I’m going to leave you with something fun. Costco members know that around the holidays, they give out a great Costco cookbook for free. They’ve been doing it for 4 years now. This year, their free cookbook will be given out this week, from 11/24-26, while supplies last. They usually are gone by the end of the first day, so if you’re a member, make sure to head down and grab a copy. But now for the really good news … member or not, you can download and print copies of their cookbooks from the past 4 years right here (scroll down, they’re on the bottom left). Cool, huh?
For the very first time since we started SIXTY-ONE WEEKS ago, there is only other dog participating in Weekend Dog Blogging this weekend with Eli. Everyone else must be already getting started on holiday preparations. Eli was almost on his own until Ziggy came along. Until tomorrow…
A year ago today … the inability to resist temptation.
Ziggy pops in for a visit from Soul Fusion Kitchen in Los Angeles.
