  • Okay, here it is, new life-activity thread:

    Pics will yield extra bonus points, but...

    Tell us about the contents of plate of food, that the significant other just plopped down in front of your tired and hungry self and said, "here you go, hope you like it!"

    I'll go first:

    Three younger baked potatoes, with sour cream and sharp American cheese topped on the pre-sliced, lightly seasoned, and steaming spuds of beauty. A nice portion of crinkle-cut sliced carrots in real butter. Two larger battered cod filets (prob from the freezer into the mic) along with healthy dollop of her homemade tarter sauce.

    Presentation was amazing, plus I got a kiss on the cheek as the delivery occurred. It'll all be washed down with a Coors Original Banquet.

    Beat that, my friends in Hawk.

  • Wrong beer my friend. Minus two points. Plus one point though for cheese AND sour cream on baked spuds (bacon bits would've been good for one more). Otherwise excellent

    Fortunately, no. My cat cares enough about me not to want my arteries to become more clogged than they already are!

  • In a weird co-incidence my cat brought me a half dead mouse last night. My wife decided to pop it into a shoe box with some food to see if it would recover

    Checked it this morning and surprise surprise no mouse in the box. Nibbled it's way out by making one of the air holes a little bit bigger

    I'm hoping that's it's found it's own way out

  • How this thread about my wife's cooking turned into a thread about what the cat just drug in, I'll never know.

    However, I think a metaphor resides in here somewhere.

    Don't you realize that to some folks on this board, their cat IS their significant other? Sheesh!

    Perhaps the better question is; Why is your wife trying to harden your arteries? Think about that one. :mrgreen:

  • Just to update further my wife's friend said the rogue mouse would be behind the fridge freezer

    I pulled it out and sure enough it was sat there looking scared

    I have now released it back into the wild

  • I sure wish I could play. My wife does NOT cook. I do.

    She did when we first got married, and then it just trailed off over the years after she
    learned I could cook and enjoy it. Not that I WANT to do a lot of cooking, but that's
    the way life turned out.

  • She gets jazzed over cooking, so she tries to do the June Cleaver thing as much as she can.

    Yes, I am one lucky dude.

    My cat is not my significant other...I am my cat's significant slave. She meows, I jump...sometimes ask How High?? She tells me she wants food, I get her a mouse. She says not that, I get her some Pate'. So far, I dont need to cook her food like filet mignon yet. She is reading this as I type it too.....oops. dangit.

  • This morning (her day off), I have been the blessed recipient of poached (farm-fresh) eggs, laid upon lightly-toasted and buttered Thomas' English Muffins. No Hollandaise, but that stuff is tough to get correct. A little salt & pepper completed that entrée. Then we had three strips up that thickly-sliced bacon cooked so it is still a bit rubbery. I hate crispy bacon that gets all gravely along your gums when chewed. I like my bacon soft, not crunchy. Finally, a nice glass of perfectly chilled and properly-pulped orange juice to wash it all down with. I am left nourished, and far from wanting.

    (* lights a Marlboro Smooth cigarette, takes a long drag, exhales into the crisp morning air, returns to keyboard...*)

    I have awarded her 3 Brownie Points for her efforts this morning. I love that woman. She will receive one of my special "sessions" later tonight. She will enjoy it.

    So your woman has you on a high cholesterol, high sodium, high fat, diet; and allows you to do nicotine in the house.

    Hmmmm....Has she also upped your Life Insurance lately? :twisted:

    No smoking in the "house" here, and rarely in the office unless its a pass-through situation. Nope, I step outside to have a smoke, think, then return to the keyboard.

    With regard to cholesterol, et. al., I'm one of those rare individuals that is blessed with a very high motabolism, a good heart, great digestion and regularity, and can eat and eat and eat, and never gain weight. Aside from a severely bent spinal column, I'm one of those healthy-as-a-horse types everyone loves to hate.

    I wasn't jealous about the cool wife, cool car, and having Rob as a boytoy, been there done that...but your high metabolism, great digestion, etc., has me green with envy!!

    I hate you!! :thfight7:

    Just to make sure no one takes it wrong: When I said 'been there, done that,' what I meant was I've had a cool wife, and a cool car. Carry on.

    Hate me too Lymon cuz this is me as well. Sorry my friend. Dinner last night was a pint of Ranger IPA (New Belgium), 3 pork sliders and an order of cheese and bacon fries/tots. My cholesterol in December was 130ish.
    No smoking though for me. 9 years later and I do still miss it at times.



    One question for you both though.......how do I get Rob as a boytoy?

    Rob is on a Hiatus right now. At least, that is what I'm calling it, so my lovely with does all the cooking.

    Fun fact: Rob makes the most delicious coffee I've had, and he makes this curry dish that is to die for. Really good cook.
