NaBloPoMo Day 30: Married With Secrets

Hubby and I got married in 2006.  One would think that after being married for a few years, we'd know some very important facts about each other.

On the weekend, I discovered a very important fact that my husband conveniently forgot failed to tell me! Yes, people! He's been  holding out on me and this secret can potentially change our lives as we know it.

My husband can cook.

That's right. For the past few years, I have been cooking 99% of our meals when all along, the man can cook! I knew he was great with the BBQ (the guy makes a wicked potato dish on the BBQ that is perfectly paired with his steaks!). I knew he could make a tuna and macaroni salad. He can do a mean "farmer's breakfast" (bacon, eggs, sausage, etc).

However, I had no idea that he could actually "cook"!

Artsy Teacher Mom and I were so exhausted from our Mommy Misadventures, where we conveniently managed to get ourselves stranded in a the middle of traffic, in a city two and a half hours away from home, in the winter...with our toddlers and a baby.

Artsy's husband had to come fetch us, the kids, and our purchases. When Artsy's husband brought us back to the Island, Hubby had an amazing feast prepared for us upon our arrival. He made a beef stew with curry, potatoes, chickpeas, corn, herbs, and some other mouthwatering items!

I was in complete and utter shock. The aromas that permeated the air as we entered our home were divine! How could Hubby not tell me that he was capable of something like this? We'll be married five years in June and I'm always surprised at the new things I learn about Hubby. He never ceases to shock and amaze.

Psssst! I did it! I survived NaBloPoMo! I posted every day for the month of November!

Congrats on NaBloPoMo! Maybe I'll join in next year, if I remember ahead of time! My hubby's a good cook too. He does most of the cooking on the weekend & I cook all week long.

Yay on NaBloPoMo-ing successfully.

Hahahaha...about hubby. Obviously he lives by the code; "Do not reveal more about your talents than absolutely necessary, else you'll end up doing it all the time."

Men are like that. :)

But yes, he's a keeper. My hubby would've wanted me to fix my own and HIS too, after that ordeal.

Thanks! It was pretty crazy, but I did it! :)

Awesome that your hubby is a good cook and that he does most of the cooking on the weekend! Gotta luv a man who can cook!!!

Unknown said...

Thank you! Oh, I know!! Crazy, huh? For nearly five years, I've been in the dark! I was led to believe that he was a typical farm boy who never cooked his own meals and who grew up on mama's home cookin'. Crazy!

Unknown said...

Yes, *that* code! I think we should practice that too. "Huh? Operate a tractor??? What does that mean?"

If they don't know we can do it, then they won't ask? If they don't know, it won't be expected of us? LOL!
