“The Tale of the Missing Husband”
I left Matt at the bakery at 5pm [still working on the oven and cleaning up lots of dust] and headed back home on my bike. He said he’d be home around 6 or 6:30. I piddled around for a bit and then decided to start on dinner so it would be ready when he arrived.
I texted him at 6:45 and said dinner would be ready in 10 minutes, while I grilled up some broc + eggplant doused in olive oil, salt, pepper and smoked paprika.
At 7:00 there was no sign of him.
I worked on our whole wheat spaghetti flavored with Pestos with Panache – Smoked Almond + Prosciutto – and topped with a pretty egg and parmesan
I poured him a beer to make his arrival even more exciting.
At 7:20 I moved his beer to my side of the table.
At 7:21 I drank it.
I 7:22 I decided to start eating.
At 7:26 I proclaimed [out loud] eggplant as my favorite vegetable. Especially when grilled!
By 7:45, I was all done eating.
At 8:37 I received a text: “On my way”
And at 8:40 he walked in the door.
Guess I need to go pour another beer!
