Sshhhhhhhhh…. Be Vewy Vewy Quiet. Quenifer Is Sweeping..

Awwww… she’s all tired out on a Friday night and napping on the couch. I’m going to sneak into the kitchen and cook dinner. You can watch but you have to be quiet.
Ok so we have that horrible “by Friday the fridge is trashed” thing. There’s something from the weekend that I just toss out. There’s a bunch of chicken legs that I breaded and roasted a couple nights back and a spring roll.
Plan B. Order food. Where’s the menu for China Kitchen? I keep searching and no joy. I don’t have the number in my phone because we always have a menu lying around. Maybe Jennifer has the number in her phone…
I look at Jennifer and try and figure out how to fish her phone out of her pocket without waking her up. I come up with three ideas but they all involve chloroform and the element of surprise, so I decide against it.
Seriously how can I NOT find a menu to China Kitchen?
Plan C. Open the fridge again and find completely different food in the fridge and have that for dinner instead. There’s a bunch of chicken legs that I breaded and roasted a couple nights back and a spring roll.
Hang on…
I boil some rice up and start slicing and dicing the chicken off the bone. There’s a fair pile of chicken diced up and that all goes into a fry pan with some oil and gets to frying up. Drain off the rice and add that to the fry pan as well.
Then I sliced up the spring roll and added it to the pan. A happy cascade of Chinese style vegetables and crunchy batter join into the chicken and rice. It’s so ridiculously easy and is utterly perfect in combination. A little sprinkle of soy sauce and a minute or two more and it’s done. So easy, so good. We will be doing this one again.
About halfway through the proceedings Sleeping Beauty stumbled out into the kitchen and mumbles that she was going to cook and offers to take over. She gets a kiss and a cuddle and I tell her to save her strength with a gentle push out of my kitchen…

    Do you write advertising copy on the side?

  2. LOL no.

  3. How dare you exhibit dominance by pushing your wife out of the kitchen.

    I was thinking, if a woman wrote/posted this we in the MRM would call it emo-porn. ;P
