I Married a CHEF

It's funny to remember that when I first had a heart to heart talk with my wife before we got married, the first thing that she told me is "I don't know how to cook". I told her that I don't care, as long as there are restaurants and food chains around, we won't starve. It fascinates me however, that when we settled in, she realized that she can cook and I mean she can really cook good. Even the menus that she never tried to cook before, turn out pretty good. Anyhow, since we are talking about food, here is a beef soup she cooked yesterday...Here is the pasta she made today where she called "Pasta Bahala Na". I asked her why she called it that way, she said that she really don't know what she cooked because she just invented it out from scratch, she did not follow any recipe....
Damn, it was good. I am very thankful a married a loving wife and a CHEF!

Hi Joops,

On the other hand, my wife sooks very well. I call her the chief cook because sometimes, i will assist her to cook. However, beef has been out from my menu because of health reason. I'm trying to be low on meat...especially the red meat.

Say my congratulations to your your wife .She has done her cooking well. HEhehe

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to both of you and kids...
