Appetizer - 3.22 #sol19 Story Challenge

I enjoy cooking -- or what I like to call: procrastinating in the kitchen. Thus, I tend to suck up most of our household's culinary oxygen, and ingredients.

That's why my wife's words just now merit a slice of their own. Amid a half-head of lettuce, a handful of carrots, and six eggs she'd already transferred from fridge to counter, with me hovering nearby, she announced, "Don't worry. I've got this. I've been watching cooking shows."

So I left to prep this small spoonful of writing instead.

  1. A delicious slice. Your wife's sense of humor seems to be as spicy and saucy as yours.

  2. Oh my. I'm glad you left her on her own and I hope those cooking shows steered her straight because that's one interesting set of ingredients...

    1. Post-prandial report: She scrounged some additional elements to riff on chef's salad.

  3. No culinary feats here on a Friday, but a head of lettuce and a box of eggs? She knew when there were too many cooks in the kitchen.

  4. Good for her! When my husband hears those words, he instantly calls take-out.
