An Autopsy in the Kitchen

Last night I was on the couch reading with KC by my side, our usual M.O.



I heard some dishes clanging in the kitchen but kept kept on reading. I figured someone was just emptying the dishwasher and that made me happy.

More clanging, and then a loud voice, "What does 'minced' mean?"

I yelled back, "It means chopped up really, really small."

A few minutes later..."What does 'diced' mean?"

I thought, What is going on in there, an autopsy? I hollered back, "It means bigger than minced but smaller than chopped." What's next? What does 'sliced' mean? Which Tupperware should you use for the heart?!

Eesh.

That's it.

So I got off the couch and went in the kitchen.

And this is what I found.



How cute is that?



The man can barbecue like no other. His burgers are the best.



But never in our 12 years together have I ever seen him follow a recipe.



And despite thinking 'tsp' meant tablespoon and adding too much salt,



The dinner was delicious! Chicken with red bell peppers, wilted lettuce and pine nuts over fettucini and sprinkled with parmesan.




Can't wait to see what we're having tonight :)

"What does minced mean?" That cracks me up! The dinner looks fantastic--much better than the grilled cheese & tomato soup I'm whipping up tonight.
