We've been in our home four years now and we've spent some days cooking together. It's not exactly how I'd envisioned it. Did I tell you hubby is a man of few words? It goes something like this: I update hubby on everything that's going on in my life...I then ask hubby a question or two...Hubby responds with a one-word answer...I think of something else to say...Hubby doesn't respond to what I just said so I ask him if he heard me...Hubby says that he heard me but it wasn't a question so he didn't know he was supposed to respond...I say to hubby, "I was thinking that we'd talk while we cook together"... Hubby says, (as he's concentrating intensely on his task) "I'm working". And so it goes. I've learned not to have expectations while we're cooking. Just sharing time together is special enough for me. I can feel the love.
Over the weekend hubby made Spicy Shredded Pork from our newest cookbook, The Pioneer Woman Cooks. We served it on a corn tortilla with cilantro lime rice, sauteed veggies, salsa, sour cream and Chipotle Pepper Sauce. Hubby gives this recipe 4.5 stars out of 5 and our son gives it 5 out of 5. You can find the recipe here on The Pioneer Woman Cooks site. I made crock pot macaroni and cheese. I'll tell you more about that later.
