Since hubby had to work on our two-year wedding anniversary we celebrated on our days off together, July 24th & 25th. I decided to make dinner at home instead of going out and celebrating at a restaurant, since we’re already spending a pretty penny. Hubby restoring his 1996 Ford Mustang and me by going on vacation to San Francisco in a week.
My hubby’s thing is classic cars and though hubby tries to explain car things to me, I have no idea what he is talking about. I do enjoy going to classic car shows and looking at all the pretty cars though. Something I learned to love from my father. Hubby took his Mustang yesterday to the paint shop to get painted and I’m eagerly waiting until it is completely done. Then we can enter it in car shows! The Mustang is very sentimental part of my life. Hubby took me on dates in it and I learned how to drive in it.
Back to my dinner plans. Well, first of all I am not a cooker. I don’t like to cook. I don’t like the idea of being in the kitchen for a long time trying to prepare a meal and in the end doesn’t turn out as expected. But I went ahead and gave it a try. I got a Stuffed Pepper recipe for About.com and it turned out…delicious! Yes, I was surprised too! And, it wasn’t that difficult. My hubby was very impressed and proud, which only encouraged me to go on. For dessert I made banana bread. My cooking was the best anniversary gift for hubby because that meant less cooking for him. Maybe.
I’m giving this cooking thing a second chance. When hubby and I have days off together I’m going to (try to) make a delicious meal. Wish me luck!
