- I REALLY love and appreciate my husband.
- No worries, I've got plenty of pepto bismal in the cupboard for the next day.
- Note to self: This is why you always build your menu around what you already have, not completely from store bought ingredients and definitely not from cravings.
So he totally deserves steak and all the trimming for his birthday dinner.
But I have to say, I nearly puked when I saw the register receipt this week. I just had to keep saying.....I Love This Man, I Love This Man. We are going to have to have breakfast at 7AM to get all this eating in.
For breakfast he requested (and this is exactly his words):
OJ and V8
Scrambled eggs with chunky salsa
rye toast soaked in butter
5 sausage links
shredded hash browns
Artichoke and sun dried tomato pizza and vanilla coke. (I'll purchase this pre-made at a later time)
garlic mashed potatoes
dense chocolate dessert with cool whip
