My husband cooks!

Ryan and I cook very differently. I am brilliant at throwing things together to a deadline, with an emphasis on comfort food, and veggies. Ryan loves trying new, complicated recipes, the more spectacular the better - and it always looks beautiful. When I went to a late gym class last week, I came home to a surprise four course dinner.

How could I not love him?
Chilli fried Prawns. Yum.
Blue cheese fritters. I still don't know how he managed to cook these so perfectly. They were deepfried, but not greasy at all. Magic. And gooey cheesiness inside. That's parmesan cheese on top.
The main event - chicken pot pies! They had a tomato based sauce, not creamy, and it was really good.
I was way too full for dessert, but I ate my poached pear anyway.
Heaven. There was even cream.

Wow! He sounds like a gem! Chili fried prawns sound great!

Have got you blogrolled now. I've got to do some cleanup in the blogroll and add a foodie category, but have you in there now, so I won't forget to check back.

I love your recipes!

Don't be fooled...I'm still very much of the Anglican persuasion...it's just fun to explore other faiths and we have so many wonderful ones here in the Appalachians.

Blue cheese fritters! That sounds great! I am going to have to try to recreate them.
