26th January…a Holiday!
Its pre-dinner time… your
Better Best Half (also a passionate foodie and cook chef) asks you, “What’s the MENU for dinner?”
You tell the thoughts that you have for dinner, instantly, mentally taking the stock of cooked and uncooked food you have in the refrigerator and dish out…
- Option-A ….which is out rightly rejected
- Option-B … which is welcomed with a dirty look
- Option-C, (you tell with a warning that this is the last available option)…and this too is vetoed as your Best Half has garnered the support of the junior too.
You ask a bit not too coolly, “What is it that you wanna eat??”
And there is no answer rather you can see myriad
thoughts recipes juggling to come out in the forefront, in his eyes.
Still, no answer.
Just then the cell phone rings and your Best Half steps out of the house to meet a friend.
The wall clock shows the time as 8 pm. You quickly go into the kitchen and cook Option-B which you believe had received some positive response!!
8.15 pm, you open the pressure cooker and savor the aroma of the dish and you sense the presence of your Best Half behind you, soaking in the aroma too. From his looks, you judge that the dish has passed his stringent ‘Recipe Test’.
Your smile of satisfaction freezes the very next moment, as he says, “I am making Spaghetti Noodles”.
You give a half irritated look and point towards the prepared, ready to eat, yummy looking dish. And it is suggested nonchalantly that the same can be used the next day.
You fume and look around as suddenly all the ingredients and veggies appear on the kitchen table. (He had gone shopping after meeting the friend!).
When the Master Chef is at work, you have no role to play, so you beat a hasty retreat and look around your farm, harvest a few trees and chickens and look at your blog…
- Spaghetti Noodles
- Freshly made tomato sauce
- Freshly made coriander and green chilies sauce
- Potato finger chips
- Fried peas and french beans
All of them are expertly served to you and 2 pairs of eyes look expectantly at you as you taste it.
Of course, your face says it all.
How would YOU respond if you were in “YOU’s” situation!!??
