Dinner for Two or not?

Doesn’t anyone make real food anymore? I am NOT a good cook, God in his infinite humor gave those genes to my mom and sister. I have never been able to just “put a meal together”. My poor husband; he doesn’t complain; he eats cereal or once in a while will say – be ready because I need to go out and get some REAL food tonight. I feel so bad, really I do.

Shoot I can eat half a sandwich and be full. He needs substance; meat, potatoes and green beans. I don’t care that much for red meat anymore, nor is it good for you. Plus the fact that it is so expensive anymore. Who can afford to make a T-bone on the grill? NOT me…

I was just looking at Tasty Kitchen for some ideas of something to make for supper. Hubby doesn’t care for cheese, or white sauce, the only veggies he cares for are green beans and corn. Sort of limits any kind of creativity. Give me some hummus and pita bread or pesto on pasta and I am fine. He isn’t that easy. It isn’t that he tries to be picky we all have foods that we don’t like to eat, so that is okay. I accept his food aversions.

I on the other hand feel that I am not doing my obligation as a good wife by not fixing him a healthy meal each night. He worked hard today, so he desires food. Right? I can only offer so many Stouffer’s meals from the freezer; which he will eat on occasion.

I have it! Today is Wednesday, free pie night at Village Inn – he LOVES pie. Problem solved for one more night.
