Hubby of the Year

Yesterday, I mentioned I had a hair appointment Thursday night after work.  Well, I actually had a bit more than just a hair appointment.  When I called Kevin to let him know I was on the way home, he said he planned a surprise dinner for me.*

*This is the same man who in college cooked pasta and put a glob of peanut butter on it to make “peanut sauce.”  Yes, it’s the same man who through a slice of Kraft American cheese on a frozen pizza to make it cheesier.  Uh-huh… you’re with me on this.

As soon as I walked in the door, Kevin asked, “How many calories have you had today?”  I asked if I should probably just stop counting, and he nodded.  I have to admit, the house smelled gooooooood.

Yup – he made this!  It was delicious, but more importantly, it was meaningful.  I had forgotten that I emailed him this recipe months ago with a message saying, “If you ever cook for me, make this!”  He actually did.

Thanks Sweetie!  (Though it’s your fault if I don’t fit in my little black dress this weekend.)


Luckily for me, this awesome dinner was followed with an awesome run the next morning.  I completed 3 miles of speed intervals before banging out a heavy leg day.  Take that squats!  *Avoiding the scale – focusing on the results instead.  😉


The weekend is off to a good start.  I hope yours is too!

  10. Wow, I am impressed. My husband tried to cook for me only to text me asking how to turn on the oven. We ended up with “gourmet” sandwiches.
