Divine Dining

Two nights in a row, I have SCORED!! J LOVED my Caribbean Chicken with Mango Salsa on a bed of Couscous. It was tasty! And, I even grilled the chicken myself. Normally, I get everything ready, and J grills it. But tonight, he taught me how to grill. Whoohoo!!

I should mention, the Pampered Chef cookbook told me to use their food chopper (which I did) to chop the mango. But it came out mushy. Maybe my mango was too ripe. I would have gotten a less mushy result if I had just done it with a knife. No biggie.

While I'm being honest...I don't know that I've ever eaten couscous. J isn't so sure he has either. Oh well, I have not only eaten it, but I made it.

J said he is starting to feel a bit...territorial about the kitchen. Cooking has always been his domain in our home. Now, I'm cooking, and this week, I made 2 dishes that could go head-to-head with his finery. Never, in almost 9 years of marriage would either of us have ever thought this day might come.

Looks yummy!
I've been trying to learn how to cook, too. Strange the things motherhood makes you do, huh? Who'da thunk it! ;-)
