It's been several weeks since I've cooked more than three meals during the work week. Work has been the biggest factor. I am grateful my husband does not mind leftovers or that as long there is food to eat in the house he can fend for himself pretty well without relying on takeout.
This afternoon I thought I would make an effort to cook something labor intensive that I would never have time to prepare during the week. I made "Chiles Rellenos".
Now at my forty something I had never made them (start to finish) on my own. Usually I have assisted "Mamacita" and let me tell you, I don't know how she cooks them all on her own on top of a kid friendly (for my picky eating siblings and nephew) dish like "Flautas" or "Tacos" when she gathers us for family dinners.
Usually when I cook at home, my honey shares in the work, but I thought I would tackle the job by myself as a way to make up for my lack of cooking lately. That, and my honey was wiped out from his long run today (he is training again for another marathon).
My honey was pretty happy, and I am glad he is the type of man who appreciates a home cooked meal.
