Dinner Fail

Yesterday I tried to get away with some fru-fru food for dinner. Teriyaki burgers with mango pineapple salsa. I had some ripe mangoes and a fresh pineapple; why not give it a go?

Because I'm married to a manly man, that's why not. With the notable exception of pineapple ham pizza, fruit belongs in desserts and meat belongs in... meat.

Suspiciously eyeing the mango pineapple salsa: "What do you do with this stuff?"

"You put it on the burger."

"To eat?"

"That's the idea."

I thought it was pretty good, actually. It wasn't a "let's eat this every week," but it was a "nice Summery meal."

My darling, on the other hand, ate with the same resigned look on his face as when my niece put a flower ribbon in his hair. Of course he would never complain!

"The buns and meat are really good. And I like mangoes." (There's a non-sequitur for you).

Thankfully there was pumpkin roll for dessert.

yeah, "chic food", as my husband likes to say, rarely gets more than a "eh, it'll eat" comment from my husband. But, that's ok! He won't actually complain, either. I guess since most nights I try to keep him happy in the dinner department, he doesn't mind me throwing in a girly dish here and there =) And, actually, once he actually conceded defeat and liked what I fixed! I probably shouldn't out him for this, but I made some of those tortilla roll up thingies, that you slice and make little appetizers out of...at first he was all "what is this?", but then when I offered him a few with some salsa, he ate the whole bag of them (the ones I didn't need for my party, anyway), and said they were good. They didn't even have meat in them! Go figure...

My problem early in my marriage wasn't what I made, but how much. Coming from a family that consisted of my mom, my sister and myself, I would make a recipe that said, "Serves 4" and take that literally. Of course, I had one serving,and he ate the other three in one sitting, and would say, "That's really good; can I have some more?" He had a lot of PB&J sandwiches after dinner the first year or so...

there is NO way my hubby would eat a mango, especially on a burger. Meat is meat, dessert is chocolate, and fruit is girl food.
