J and I have been married for 6 ½ years, we know each other pretty well. J can still surprise me once in a while with his taste and preferences. J has learned to deal with all my craziness quite well, but I can easily scare him any time I want. It’s really pretty easy, just 6 little words … “Honey I tried a new recipe!”
I love to cook and bake. I like to try new recipes and often do so. I do use some discretion and try recipes that I think J will like. I watch for recipes that do not include ingredients or foods he does not care for, there is a long list of them. Sometimes I toss all reason out the window and try a recipe with the stuff I like, a lot of which is on J’s foods I don’t eat list.
J is a typical cowboy. He likes meat, lots of cheese, ranch salad dressing and foods that are fried. I am a big meat eater also and like lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. I love lots of spices and flavor while J prefers a little salt and pepper. I often cook meals that comprise of J’s half and my half. Pizza, casseroles, hamburgers and steak are good examples.
J is having a Township meeting at our house on Monday. While looking through an ag paper he found a dessert recipe the thinks looks good. After analyzing the recipe I realized I have a similar recipe. I have made my recipe before and noted that it was good. If it was bad I would have put it in file 13 and never made it again. I have put quite a few recipes in file 13, also known as the trash can.
I will let you know if I make J’s new request or rebel and make my version.
Is your cowboy particular about the foods he likes or will he eat anything?
