HiMARIA;That's A GREAT STORY How long are you & that sensible & loving guy married,, NOW????????????????
I thought the four food groups were cookies, chocolate; barcookies & fresh(out of season) fruits Hubby adds a 5th group: dark rich coffeeto go w/ the other 4 groups
In Response to The Four Food Groups:
Yes, I am now a great cook and baker, but when I was a newly wed, well..I wasn't so great. Being a struggling actor, I ate on the run. When I got married, I realized that I needed to get domesticated. [p]I read books and articles about cooking, consulted my Mom, and my Mom-in-law. The best advice I received from them and all of my readings was it all starts with a plan, or rather a menu list of meals for the entire week. Discussing with my newly-wed husband, he suggested that I start with the four basic food groups. [p]I answered boldly, "The four food groups? I can do that!" [p]My husband cautiously asked, "Honey, do you know what are the four food groups?" [p]I came right back even more boldly, "Sure I do." [p]He asked, "Okay, so what are they?" [p]I proudly answered, "Canned, Frozen, Microwaveable and Take-Out." [p]After he picked himself up from the floor after falling over laughing, he pulled out one of the cookbooks we received as a wedding present, and we began to read it together. He never complained, nor laughed at my less than perfect culinary talents. His loving attention to allow me to grow into the wife he always wanted, has been one of the most-beautiful part of our married life. [p]So now when we plan the menu to fit our busy schedule, Canned, Frozen, Microwaveable and Take-out, is sometimes our routine. We chuckle, because we know how it started and have seen how it's grown.
