I wish I was married to me.

Having a wife would make my life so much easier.

I definitely should get one of those maids/cooks.

Talk about bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan ... well, really, Beau fried the bacon.

I did the horrendous job of chopping, without whining or crying, mind you. (Note I'm still dressed in my work clothes, which included high-heeled boots ... that was for the husband too. I mean, what man doesn't like a well-dressed broad in the kitchen cooking up his meal. This is a rare occurrence.)

It was like having a real 1950s housewife in the house. Resemblance? I think so.

I present to you ... Coq au vin.
(which should definitely be started before 5:30 p.m.)

For the recipe, you know who to visit ... need I say her name?

OK. Pioneer Woman.

I really love this woman.

I received this in the mail yesterday ...
... and my heart got all aflutter thinking about reading through it last night.

I literally had an internal struggle about doing my Bible reading versus the cookbook. No lie.

The book of Galatians won out, but I did sneak a few peaks at the other book.

All you're missing is a string of pearls ;)

Love that cookbook. I'm making her pulled pork for dinner tonight.

Wow! Good for you! I wish I had the DESIRE to cook right now. Meh, the kids like cereal when Jeff's out of town and when he's here we cook together. Thanks for the link for the recipe.

Hey you hot broad, I love that cookbook. I've made P-Dub's cinnamon roll recipe 3 times now, and it's totally worth it. So is the chicken spaghetti. I made the comfort meatballs last night...very yummy. Lots of work, so I'm going to stick with plain meatloaf next time.
