Men can cook too!!

Since moving to Mexico I have to admit cooking has turned to be more difficult than I would like. I´ve always loved cooking, and to be fair I still do. However, it is as if I am learning to cook all over again. I can´t find the spices that I am used to cooking with, and almost everything here has MSG. Now, on the plus side the fruits and veggies are fresher than this little Canuck could dream. Little by little I have made due, and thank goodness for Costco as they do sell an Organic All Seasoning Spice!! My cooking is slowly starting to taste more and more like, well, my food!! YAY!

Last night hubby decided I needed a break from the kitchen. It was my ¨night off¨ so to speak. I sat back at our breakfast bar, poured myself a glass of red wine and waited. Hubby used to cook more frequently when we lived in Canada as I was also working full time, but since I am no longer employed...guess I can´t complain now...eeep.

Well, oh well was this gal spoiled, or was she spoiled??!!! He made me my fave - chile rellenos, and tomatillo chicken!!!! Who knows what it´s really called, but it was sooooooo delicious. I loved my ¨break¨, and I am ready to cook albondigas for him tonight.

Thanks hubbs!!!
