Good Morning Foodies! TODAY IS THE BIG DAY! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO HUBBY AND ME! YEAH! Strangely enough, I got several requests to repeat the story I did last year about this time about how to convince HUBBIES about something you want and he may have trouble understanding. This can also be called, “MANIPULATION”! Hope HUBBY does not see that word. I always try to take advantage when HUNTING SEASON falls around our ANNIVERSARY. So pay close attention to my plan!
Good Morning Foodies! So, like I promised to share with you, a most wonderful cooking lesson that goes a long way. PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE DIALOGUE!!!
Me: Hey, Pat, I think we should have lobster for our anniversary dinner.
Pat: Really, don’t you think that is too expensive! You know they tack on the process of trapping the lobsters, they have to ship them here. They probably fly first class to get here.
Me: Well, let’s see—how about cooking some of your ducks you killed!
Pat (with big grin): Now you are thinking! That is more reasonable!
Me: Really, this is how I figure the cost of that ONE DUCK!
1-Hunting License – $25
2-Hunting Outfit (Hat, Gloves, Thermal Underwear, Shirts, Jackets, Pants, Boots, Socks, Belts, Whistles, Duck Calls etc. You get my drift!! CABELA’S ON STEROIDS!)-$1250
3-Buy a Hunting Dog-???????-Justify by saying it is a family pet!
4-Get a 4 -Wheeler or Polaris -$2500 or more with all the stuff attached.
5-Preparing the Duck Blind–$5000
6-Leasing Property for the Duck Blind –$25,000
So when you come home with one duck—-what does that duck cost!!! You do the math!!!
Last I saw of Pat, he had his face pressed up against the lobster tank, pointing to the ones he wanted.
****This also works in the furry animal department! Promise you it works!!
I decided to skip “REPEAT WEDNESDAY” and talk a little more about anniversaries and married life! Hold on!!!!!!!!!!!! The basic definition of MARRIAGE IS THIS: “A RELATIONSHIP WHERE ONE PERSON IS ALWAYS RIGHT AND THE OTHER ONE IS THE HUSBAND!” The sooner the man realizes that, the smoother things will be. The one thing that confuses most men is this: “WHEN A WOMAN SAYS “WHAT?” IT’S NOT BECAUSE SHE DIDN’T HEAR YOU. SHE IS GIVING YOU A CHANCE TO CHANGE WHAT YOU SAID!” So you guys out there, if you can master those two concepts you might be around for 46 years! Remember they say the first “50” years are the hardest. Practice, practice, practice. All that aside, the bottom line about a lasting marriage and relationship is NOT FINDING SOMEONE TO LIVE WITH; IT’S FINDING SOMEONE YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT! When you have been married this long, what type of gift do you give. God knows we have everything we need and more! So to my WONDERFUL HUBBY, I give you these words of love, “THERE WERE DAYS WE LAUGHED A LITTLE LOUDER! THERE WERE DAYS WE CRIED A LITTLE SOFTER! THERE WERE DAYS WE LIVED A LITTLE STRONGER! THIS ALL HAPPENED BECAUSE WE STOOD TOGETHER!” We all know Life can throw big curves! I think it is very important to put aside the paperwork and mindless busy stuff, take a walk, feel the sunshine on your face, embrace the now and find happiness and when you find it—HOLD ON TO IT AND DON’T LET IT GO! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY HUBBY! YOU ARE THE BEST! I THINK THE KITCHEN IS CLOSED TONIGHT! HAVE A GREAT DAY!
You Can’t Geaux Wrong With Choosing Either the Grilled Lobster or Baked Duck!
But I Believe My Best Dish Is The One In The Center! Best Thing I Ever Did!
