Happy Sunday TKW Family! I swear the weeks are just flying by. It seems like just the other week it was freezing and snowing. Oh wait, it was. I forgot I still live in Pittsburgh. It’s no wonder my butt is sick right now. I had to go away last week for two days unexpectedly and in the midst of my packing I left my allergy medicine at home. Yeah, not the smartest thing I did. Well I was sorta ok while I was away however the morning I woke up it hit me like a ton of bricks… those sickly eyes that were all glassy and watering, sniffles and sneezes and almost no voice. Not a big deal… until I got home. You see Mr. Fantabulous will FREAK OUT if he’s around anyone that has a cold. The man swears he doesn’t get just a cold but rather he gets the Bubonic plague. We’re talking full-blown must lie in bed for a week and be waited on hand and foot “cold”. As soon as I got home and he walked outside to come hug me he stopped like 3′ from me and said “Wait, look at me. Are you… are you… are you.. SICK???” and jumped back like 3′! I simply said “It’s allergies; come hold me. I missed you.” in an almost inaudible voice. Folks you would have though I just sprayed the Bird Flu on the man as he ran away from me! LOL Nice homecoming, huh?
So I carried my stuff into the house and went to grab something to drink. Now you all know me, at any given time there are at least 3 whole dinners prepared in my fridge for well, anyone. We used to get a lot of unexpected company so I wanted stuff on hand. And now, with my traveling more than normal I need to make sure that he’s taken care of food-wise in the event (like this one) I had to leave suddenly. As I opened the fridge I stood there honestly kind ticked off. EVERYTHING I had made was still there. So wait, why would I be mad then? That’s good, right? NO! Why?
That means Mr. Fantabulous literally ate peanut butter sandwiches and cereal for 2 days. I mean we’re talking a plate of turkey meatballs and marinara sauce, brown rice with Asian chicken and veggies, western burgers and onion rings, and a big bowl of creamy tomato soup. All that and the man eats friggen cereal! So as he came into the house you could see that I was not happy. I said “Exactly what did you eat for 2 days because NONE of this stuff was touched.” His response was “you just put that all in there. It wasn’t there while you were gone.” with a big gorgeous grin. However with my being sick, it didn’t work on me. I said “Honey, all that stuff is going to go bad if you don’t eat it. I’m going to quick making stuff if you’re not going to eat it.” All he responded was “but but but.. it wasn’t on a plate. I wasn’t sure how to assemble it.”
Now before some of you start to shake your heads hear me out first as honestly this is all my fault. My Mom would prepare stuff for my Dad on plates if he was late for lunch or dinner that way all he’d have to do is heat it up and dig in. I have done the same for Mr. Fantabulous for the past almost 19 years. But with TKW and what not I don’t have the fridge space to do it any longer. So now, well okay once I’m allowed to be in the same room with him without be Lysol’d to death, I have to teach him how to assemble and plate. Honestly I’m really looking forward to it. I love being able to teach things like this.
So how was your week? What’s your week look like coming up? With Memorial Day next Monday, are any of you taking this Friday off for a long 4-day weekend? I’m on the fence about it. I have a ton of work to do but a break would be nice – even if it’s porch view. LOL Anyway, here’s to you having one amazing week! Enjoy the weekly menu and hey, invite me over for dinner one night! I’ll bring the dessert!
