Dear Daniel, What do you want???


Daniel and I have been married for 6 years. In those six years he cooked dinner twice (in the first year). He made sesame crusted tuna, and tacos. They were actually pretty decent for someone who never cooks. I don’t know what got into to him tonight, but he made dinner for the third time. I’m not sure if it was because he was sorry for pissing me off this morning, or because he wanted me to post his food in my blog. He claims that he wanted to help because I wasn’t feeling well.

Surprisingly he made a really tasty dinner, so I decided to post it. Daniel I LOVE you soooooo much!!!!

Such concentration!


We bought a steelhead fish this afternoon in Costco. It looks very similar to salmon, but it is part of the trout family. It actually looks so similar that a while back my father in law didn’t believe me, and even after I proved it to him by showing it to him on the internet, he STILL argued with me that it wasn’t trout. The flesh of the steelhead is very tender and has a mild nutty flavor.

When I walked into the kitchen to get dinner started, I saw all these ingredients all over the counter. I said, what are u doing???? He insisted on making dinner. The control freak that I am in the kitchen I had to know what he was making. I looked at the recipe he found online and of course I’m already telling him what to change. Do this, and do that, add this, and take that out…

I would normally give credit to the original recipe, but it was completely changed.

He also made corn,




even Aaliyah’s baby food (steamed zucchini and sweet potato)!


Along the way he broke the knife…Whatever Daniel touches turns to scrap!


But most importantly, when he was done he cleaned up and washed the dishes!


I hope you all enjoy and maybe this will inspire some hubbies/boyfriends!
