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!
