And before she spills the beans in the comment section, I will confess that my go to supper when the Rooster worked shift work was the no name equivalent of Kraft Dinner. :O
I have been diagnosed as gluten intolerant and I need to find some alternatives to toast and pasta. Hence the recipe research. It wouldn't hurt to razzle dazzle the Rooster with a few culinary surprises either.
My niece, who is a chef, was here at the coop for a visit and kindly offered some suggestions. She and I spent a whole day in Winnipeg touring Asian markets. Who knew! I did enjoy it, well, maybe not the octopus thingies, and came home with bottles, jars, packages, veggies, and spices. The Rooster would have luved it and I shall be happy to take him on a return visit. I shall carry on with the weekday cooking and enjoy the weekend respite when his passion for food is released. But I really do hope he can retire soon! :)
In the meantime, I shall continue my search for the best way to express myself with blogging.
