Josh cooked lunch & dinner today

I love the weekends because Josh usually ends up doing the cooking. I love to cook, but I also love it when he cooks. Today we did a little bit of housework and then I fell asleep on the couch while Josh did a load of dishes. When I woke up, it was to a beautifully cooked lunch, Burritos. (He also added ham into his burritos.) They were so good!

While eating his delicious meal, we talked about how far our cooking skills have come over the years. I think he meant MY cooking skills. During the first year we were married I tried to copy a dessert dish from one of my favorite Mexican restaurant, a chocolate chimi. I didn't think it would be hard. You take a chocolate bar and wrap it in a tortilla and then you fry it in oil, and in my case, smoke us out of the house. I still not sure how I did it, but when cooking the chimi's, the house got so smoky we had to sit outside for over an hour to wait for it to air out. At the time Pyro was still strictly a "house cat" so we took her out with us and set her under a laundry basket. While living in that house I also tried to make chili once and it tasted just like refried beans. It was YEARS before I tried to cook chili again.
Tomorrow Josh's family is going up the mountains for a picnic and his mom asked me to bring a dessert. I decided to try my hand at Snickerdoodles. We started breaking cookies in half just to have an excuse to eat them. :) I posted the recipe I used on my cooking blog HERE.

Josh also made dinner, Mexican Chicken Strips. They were so good! The recipe called for Fritos, but I don't like those chips so we used Doritos instead.

I saw this bird while sitting at my computer working on this post, so I thought I'd take a picture and include it in the post. :)

Andrew and I have those discussions about how far especially my cooking skills have come as well. My mom wasn't one to use spices and after marrying Andrew, I learned how much more flavorful a dish can be with them!
