I finally asked him the other day, "why aren't you happy with sandwiches and hotpockets any more? You always want leftovers now." He replies, "Back then, I never realized that such culinary wonders were possible, so I settled for what I knew was possible." Wow - warm fuzzies started growing in my chest.
I'm proud to say that my Beef and Barley Stew, Chicken and Dumplings, Jambalaya, Dal, and even my home-made pizza (and a number of other various home-made goodies) have convinced the hubby that the good stuff isn't purchased in a store. I'm also encouraged, because all the other changes I hope to bring are possible!
