But the other night he asked what was for dinner, and I responded with, “Well we have some marinated chicken and corn on the cob to grill”. I get the “look”
“I have to grill again? I don’t feel like grilling tonight.”
Now I am laughing inside. “Do you want me to grill?”
“No, it is just that I get tired of having to stand out there and cook every night”
OK, now I am seriously dying. “Hhmmmm ya, I can understand that”
“Uhhh hellooooooooooo, welcome to my world!”
Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to be a slave driver or anything. But I do admit that it has been nice for the focus to be off of me for a while. I explained to him that during the other 9 to 10 months of the year it is just assumed that I will have some sort of taste bud tantalizing, drool inducing, gourmet type meal on the table for dinner every night.
Come on, that is a lot of pressure here folks!
He was very sweet though and told me that he completely understood what I go through now. Then the next night I get…..sooo what’s for dinner? *sigh*
But that is where this recipe comes in. Enter the humble pesto! I have kind of become obsessed with pesto lately. But how can you not be? It is simple to make, throw a few things in the food processor and zipity do dah you have a fantabulous sauce that is so full of flavor. You can use it on pasta, on a sandwich, slather it on meat….I am seriously in love!
I used it in a pasta dish for supper (that recipe coming Sept 22nd) and he loved, I mean luvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvved it! He not only had a huge bowl for dinner, he took another bowl to work for lunch. When I questioned him the next day on his past comments about pesto he said, “Well, it isn’t that I don’t like pesto, I just don’t like it on sandwiches”. Really? I remember him devouring these Creamy Pesto Shrimp Rolls.
