And that's why I created a blog... Now I get it!
Scene: Husband and wife, sitting in a waiting room. Husband absent-mindedly flipping through through a magazine; wife looking through her latest issue of Everyday Food by Martha Stewart, list and pen in hand.
Wife: So, which sounds better: beef kebabs with butternut squash and onions and a side of cooked arugula OR halibut with an avocado and pineapple salsa and the same side of arugula?
Wife: Ok, I said (enter dramatic sigh)... which sounds better? THIS (points) or THAT (points again).
Husband: Oh, that (points down at a picture), for sure.
Wife: (Scribbling down on her notepad) What else do you want to eat this week?
Husband: Food. Maybe mashed potatoes.
Wife: Yeah, I got that. But what kind of food? What do you want with the potatoes?
Husband: Babe, isn't this why you created your blog? You have all those recipes right there, and every week we go through the same thing -- what to eat with mashed potatoes? Here (hands her his iPhone) -- use your blog.
And use her blog she did.
Which would be why now she is getting off Blogger and heading into the kitchen to make Greek Style Chicken with Pickled Onions, Tomatoes, and Tzatziki... instead of peeling potatoes AGAIN.
Brilliant, I tell you, brilliant.
