And just like that....

My husband cooked dinner for me!

He started by setting the broiler to roast the red peppers himself - something I've never done myself.

Then come the chopping. Well, dicing really. We consulted the book for proper techniques. It was largely a success with only one minor injury.

Somehow he managed to get the timing together perfectly so that our sandwiches were coming out of the oven just as the soup was done. Something I've yet to master. Considering Craig's previous dinner-making experience was mostly boiling water or dialing for delivery this totally impressed me.

Have I mentioned how much I love goat cheese? If Craig had not been available for our wedding ceremony, I would have married goat cheese instead.

Overall verdict? YUM. No "O", but only because I want to stab Rachel Ray in the eye whenever she speaks, so I refuse to use her slang.


  1. These sandwiches would be great with a little EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) drizzled over top. Jokes guy, jokes.

    PS: I call beginner's luck on the soup-sandwich timing thing.

  2. I too would like to stab Rachel Ray in the face - is it really too hard to say Extra Virgin Olive Oil?
    Great job Craig! I should sign up Pat for this experiment!

  3. Woops - I just noticed I recycled the same joke from Amanda's comment.

  4. That's hysterical! I think had I been missing a groom I may have married goat cheese too :)
