Poppa's Making Meals !!



I had the nicest surprise this evening! 


After a stressful couple of days at work, the last thing that I wanted to do was come home this afternoon and cook dinner. My hubby texted (is that even a word?) me about 4:30 p.m. today to ask me what I had planned for the pound of ground sirloin that I had thawed out. I told him that I had been having a craving for Stuffed Pepper Soup and I also needed to make it because I had a couple of green peppers that I needed to use. He offered to go ahead and brown the ground meat for me and I was thankful for the help. I half jokingly sent him a text asking him did he want me to send him a link to MiMi's Making Meals --and he quickly wrote back, "No!".

A little while later,  he called me and asked me to go ahead and email him the link, which I quickly proceeded to do. When I walked in from work today about 6:00 p.m., I walked in to the smell of this loveliness! YUMMO!!!!!


He was sooooo proud of himself and even did a little horn blowin' to boot!  "I think mine might even be better than MiMi's!!", he said.  And.....don't tell HIM, but I think he was right!! Or could it be that old "anything is good if someone else fixes it for you" principle! Either way, I am lovin' that Poppa now knows how to access MiMi's Making Meals.

I asked him if was he going to leave MiMi a comment and let her know that he tried her recipe and how much he liked it. He said he thought he'd just tell her in person! (-;

A couple of reasons I loved this post .... I called my grandparents (who have gone on to be with the Lord) Mimi and Papa!! So, just reading that here brings sweet memories. Also, how sweet to walk into your home with a hot meal cooked by someone you love!

Nothing better than a man who can cook. Or vacuum. That's what my hubby did for me when he got home. :)

That soup looks DE-LISH!! Another Mimi's recipe to try...thanks!! :)

Grammy and Olivia said...

You are right about food always tasting better when someone else does the work...especially when it is made with a little extra love =)

Denise said...

MMM, sooo, good. I'm just getting around to looking through Mimi's meals, and have already picked out the one's I want to try.
My hubby surprise's me with a meal about once a week ( because I tutor kids 2 nights a week). I think I will show him how to look up Mimi's making Meals and have him pick out one to try. I love the hot meal when I come in the door, have you got any tips on how to get them to clean up after?

Kristin @ Blue Skies said...

As much as I love cooking, the best meals are almost always prepared by someone else at the end of a long day!! :)

JenB said...

That's so sweet! I love that!

Denise K. said...

Oh what a wonderful treat to come home to!!! This looks like another delicious recipe I will look forward to trying!!! Are you sure you don't want to just go into catering and fly around the world cooking for your fans/clients???? (Like me!) :-)

My husband has recently started doing the cooking...after almost 33 years of marriage. It has become a hobby for him and it truly is a blessing to me. I love to bake but I have never loved the every day cooking. Isn't God good for finding ways to bless us!

Robyn Beele said...

Don't you love it when your husband does the cooking. I am so lucky because Nick wants to cook every night and I don't! The recipe looks so good!

Becky said...
