As some of you know, I have an aversion to all things cooking-y and food preparation-y. My trips to the kitchen almost always exclusively involve putting something into the microwave. However, in a bid to eat more healthily, I have been making myself eat more fruit and vegetables. Luckily, I am blessed with a doting husband who enjoys things cooking-y and food preparation-y. Every evening, as a pre-dinner snack Mark prepares a nice plate of carrots and tomatoes with basil fresh from the garden. The presentation varies, sometimes he builds little towers and garnishes the construction with a sprig of parsley; today, it was an elaborate star/wagon wheel type of thing.
Oh, and the barbecue dinner he prepared last night didn’t suck either.
