Whenever you first transfer in with somebody, you study all types of little tidbits about that somebody’s character. A few of these issues are endearing, whereas others, not a lot.
After shifting in with me, for instance, I’m positive my husband wasn’t happy to seek out out that I make up little songs about the whole lot. Particularly cats. And typically I prefer to sing obscure 80s songs changing key phrases with my cats’ names. (“Miso likes to get together on a regular basis/Occasion on a regular basis/Occasion all of the tiiiiime”–come on, that’s not annoying in any respect, proper?)
And I didn’t learn about my husband’s deep, abiding love for junk meals. I imply, don’t get me improper, I like some good junk meals at times too. However my husband? He’s critical concerning the stuff. I discover Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Cocoa Krispies hidden behind the pantry, behind packing containers of Kashi and Erewhon. Pints of Ben & Jerry’s coated with baggage of frozen inexperienced beans. One time I used to be searching for an envelope and whereas looking out by his desk, I came across an entire drawer stuffed with Pop-Tarts. An entire drawer of them, all neatly stacked of their neon-colored, fruit-flavored glory.
Again after we first beginning dwelling collectively, earlier than I actually taught myself methods to prepare dinner, we used to purchase a variety of frozen meals and Chris at all times loaded up on French bread pizzas. This was fascinating to me as a result of it wasn’t one thing I ever had earlier than. Pizza? On bread? Loopy! However he obtained me began on them and shortly I used to be shopping for them for myself on a regular basis too, although I knew they have been most likely not the very best factor I could possibly be consuming.
These French bread pizzas are a bit of extra refined than the frozen variety, although. I used my frozen pesto as a substitute of tomato sauce since I’ve a variety of it within the freezer, after which I topped the pizzas with do-it-yourself sun-dried tomatoes as a result of I nonetheless have tomatoes ripening on the countertop from the summer time. They’re simple, they style good, and also you don’t have to cover them within the freezer beneath the frozen greens.
