Mr TBT is one of 4 kids. Can the others cook? Brother B? Check. Brother T? Double check. Sister K? Check too. So what happened? I asked his mother about it once.
"I did try" sighed his mum. She sounded exasperated at the thought - still. 15 years later.
And to be fair, he can cook. He cooks a ripper spag bog. Only I wouldn't know. I'm a vegetarian.
So on Thursday, as one of the kids had a 5:30 doctor appointment, I suggested that he might do dinner that night. "Sure". He said.
Righto. How 'bout I try to get out of the shopping too. "You can do all the hunting and gathering too" I added.
"No worries. Why don't I cook tonight and tomorrow night? You can have a rest." Ahhh. What a man!
So, young Master G and I returned home to sausages. Yup. Good start. But on top of that he had roasted asparagus and red onion with pine nuts, grilled some marinated mushies and whipped together a tomato and goats cheese salad. It was good. Really good.
The next night? Roast lamb and perfect roast veggies. I love roast veggies. Check this out:
As soon as Mr TBT learned it was a mans job, he was all over it. Off he went, hunting and gathering. He returned with all the ingredients for a vegetarian version, along with chicken, mussels, chorizo, prawns and crab.
To cut a long story short it was one of the yummiest things I have tasted. Ever. Check this out:
That was three straight yummy, nutritious, wholesome, fan-bloody-tastic meals in a row. Not bad for someone who doesn't cook huh? And you know the best bit? He did most of the cleaning up those nights too. Ahhh. He's a keeper that one.
Who does the cooking in your house? Have you tried any new recipes lately?
