The Not Bad Wife
Black bean salad in foreground and tomato pie in the rear.
I decided to surprise Big Daddy with a special dinner. Background for those of you who have not taken the time to devour every word I have written-I only learned how to shop when BD moved to China. I shopped on line once in China and ended up with a whole smoked salmon, frozen and folded in half. The fish would not fit in our freezer. BD is not used to me shopping and definitely not used to me preparing meals. I acquired all the ingredients and spent the afternoon cooking. The only thing I told him was that I had purchased frozen salmon and what should I do with it. He thought I bought it while he was gallivanting around the globe.
When he saw that I had prepared everything but the fish he was over the moon. I made him a tomato pie, cucumbers and onions in vinegar, and black bean salad. I cannot eat the cucumbers and the thought of cooked tomato makes me ill. It was all for him and he was so happy I probably won't have to do anything now for months.
Big Daddy was very upset this morning over an item in the Detroit Free Press, prison inmates had more underwear than he did. To save $1.1 million a year the state is cutting back on clothes for inmates. Underpanties are reduced from 10 pair to 7 pair.
