I had a great idea.
I was going to take a shot at being domestic.
That’s right, folks. Cory and I had reached the Kardashian milestone (read: 72 days of marriage) and I guess that inspired me to put on my Wife Hat and give it a go in the kitchen.
Once again, I’ve been pinning the shit out of creative ideas, and when I saw a zucchini + other veggies meal, I thought “Well, hey. That has seven ingredients, one being water. I can totally manage that.”
And so I set out to buy the ingredients for my dinner. I was excited. Look at me! I thought. I’m a wife! I’m a wife at the grocery! I’m a wife at the grocery store who’s planning a meal that’s not made in the crock pot.
I was walking tall as I gathered a can of black beans, tomatoes, a red pepper and the main ingredient, a zucchini.
Get me 3/4 cup of water and a packet of 90 second rice and I’ll be good – to – go.
That evening, not so long ago, I heated my EVOO in a deep pan as the recipe instructed.
I mixed the black beans and tomato in a bowl.
I chopped my red pepper with enthusiasm. I’m a wife!
Lastly, I grabbed my two zucchini and began to peel them.
Goddamn it. This is a cucumber.
