My husband is pretty awesome when it comes to eating anything I make. He is fine with leftovers and is gracious when it comes to experimental dinners.
Olivia: We’re having quinoa bowls tonight…you know, like rice bowls. Trust me they’ll be great.
Jordan: Oh, ok. Great.
Olivia: Have I everrr let you down?
Olivia: Ok, Yes. Yes, I have. (Recalling several utterly flavorless soups that were so promising at the time) But these will be great.
But when you tell you husband you’re have a big bowl of grain for dinner, be sure to follow it up with all the delicious things that will be in it that he loves…like goat cheese, BBQ chicken, and asparagus. And temper it. Be sure not to say, “And there’s Chia Seed Pudding for dessert!”
After all, everything in moderation.
