I copy and paste... I stare at the words....I can't seam to do BYOC, sorry Draz. The same thing happened to me last week. Today I started doing it and I really freaked out trying to narrow down the last meal question, there's something wrong with me. My husband and I had this discussion recently on a long car trip. He asked me what my last meal would be, his would be tacos. Then I just couldn't get over the fact that he would choose tacos...he's like...I love tacos, get over it. Some of my very best times with my husband have been in the car on long trips, the parts when I'm actually awake that is. We have wonderful conversations and he just makes me laugh. A couple of years ago we drove to Ohio when his mom passed away. When we got there, he was exhausted from the drive and had to go nap, I stayed up all night with his sister talking, because I had just slept for like 17 hours straight. I guess we didn't do much talking on that trip.
My husband is a Midwesterner and I'm a Southerner, (Cajun if you will) we grew up eating very different types of food. The things that are comfort foods to me are much different than the foods that are comfort foods to him. Rice and gravy is the gold standard in Louisiana, everything has rice and gravy with it. My husband grew up eating mashed potatoes, noodles and lots of sweet corn. It's funny how we have merged our little food worlds together. Last night we had one of his comfort foods...that is quickly becoming one of mine. Maple/Honey pork links cooked in Sauerkraut served over mashed potatoes. The first time he ate that in front of me I nearly died, now it's delicious to me, who'd have thunk it. And my man gladly eats gumbo with potato salad right in the bowl. I still haven't learned to love milk and noodles yet, but maybe one day.
I'm looking forward to the weekend, we have a dinner party on Saturday and then all the Mardi Gras balls start. Lots to do, lots of fun. Did I mention that Vickie and her sweet husband John are coming for one of our Mardi Gras balls? How excited am I? This will be my 3rd visit with Vickie. It's amazing to me that I have met such wonderful people through Pearl (my band) and through this blog. What a difference you have all made in my life. Thank you. I hope you all have a great weekend.
