How NOT to tell your husband you don't like his sausage

This is the Fella smiling after cooking us lunch. Consider this the before photo. I do not have an after. Only the one burned in my memory.

The Fella Cooks

He asked his mom for the recipe and made it all on his own. The Fella doesn't generally cook. As in NEVER. He grills, he microwaves, he orders pizza. He doesn't cook. But lately he's been inspired to give it a try. And I love that. Love him.

Saturday we went out and bought all the ingredients. Everything looked good- the rice, the tomatoes. But this part got me.


Kielbasa. Beef Kielbasa. I can do it, I thought. It's just an giant hotdog. I like hotdogs- fried to a crisp and smothered on a bun. Could that rice and tomato make me forget?

He served up a small portion on my plate. I smiled through several bites of everything but kielbasa. And then I took a teeny tiny bite. I chewed. It got bigger. I chewed more. This wasn't going well.

And then I did it.
After my adorable Fella worked so hard and made us lunch...
I spit in out in a napkin in front of him.
I did.

That my friends is how NOT to tell your husband you don't like his sausage.

He has since forgiven me and I was allowed to kiss my cook. Though I can promise I will never hear the end of it. That's how we roll.

This was funny.

This is the second Monday in a ROW I have been sick AFTER my husband cooked on Sunday. Now, I am not saying his cooking is bad..but what the heck. Little does he know, he won't be cooking next Sunday. No way. No how. Just sayin'

I don't like kielbasa either. And I think your post title is hilarious.

I love kielbasa. You ladies are just picky eaters. Poor husband slaved away over an open fire in the kitchen and probably had to gather the wood to start the fire. That poor poor man. :-))

was it just that you don't like kielbasa or did he cook it wrong. i don't mind it, especially with homemade mac and cheese.

Aww...that's ok. You tried and that is what is important..I mean..isn't it? (cringing here) Ok, maybe not. always wins in the end.
(I think.)

Oh how funny, at least you both tried:) He is trying to cook and you TRIED to eat it! It is probably a good thing that he knows to TRY something different next time:)

Have a blessed day my friend! HUGS!

My husband makes something like this and I feel the same way....YUCK! So I can't blame you.

Glad to see you back around...thrifting should be starting again real soon.

CountryGirl said...

Scott - I am so excited that you want to learn how to cook...that is awesome. Don't let this little incident stop you :>). HEHE....For some reason, I think you will become an excellent cook and you will love it. Need any recipes just let me know. Not taking up for Kimberly, but I would have done the same thing or even worse. I can't stand Kielbasa! It is a texture thing with me and the taste also, but mainly the texture. Same as with shrimp, I can't get through the texture thing and also really don't like the taste...yuck!

I am proud of you for trying and look forward to see what your next dish will be. Can't wait to eat a meal that you have prepared...on second thought, maybe not, because you will cook everything we don't like on purpose and sit back and say...well, don't have to worry about them coming back anytime to soon :>).

Luv Ya,
Mom #2

Cool shots, especially along the fence.

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
