My First Married Dinner

I mean it's the first dinner that I've made for the two of us on my own since we were married. I help with the cooking and cook for myself and do dishes all the time. So this week, when Tamara asked me to cook dinner for Wednesday and Thursday, I had no problem with it, but I was surprised and didn't know what I was going to do.
Comes Wednesday evening and my wife is hungry. So I go look in the fridge to see what I can put together for a meal. Tamara is good at shopping, so I wasn't worried at all that I could put together a meal without too much forethought.

We had pasta with cheesey red sauce, veggie wraps, an apple, and pear sauce. I removed the apple peel in checkered pattern just to make the whole meal look better. It worked pretty well. Imagine what this meal would have looked like with half an unpeeled apple sitting on the plate.

Tonight we're going to have poached eggs and toast with milk. I think I'll make fried potatoes to go with it.

Good job Jack - quite a colorful meal! Glad you explained what the checkered dome was - that was a lot of work.

I love the apple! Did you brush it with OJ or Lemon Juice to keep it so white? So clever! Maybe I should try that tonight and see what reaction I get at my house! Hmmm.

Actually, since we were going to eat right away, I didn't even worry about the apple turning brown, so I didn't do anything to protect it. Fun things like this keep me more interested in preparing food; otherwise I would eat less variety by far on my own.
