Conversation I had today

Husband: What's for tea tonight?

Me: Gigantes

Him: What's that?

Me: It's a Greek dish made from butterbeans cooked slowly in tomatoes, onion and garlic

Him: Any meat?

Me: No, it's vegetarian, the beans provide protein

Him: Anything with it?

Me: There's some wholemeal soda bread, you can toast it if you want

Pause for thought...........




Him: So that's baked beans on toast then?

I just despair!

sounds like it! Did he think it tasted better than Heinz?!

Working Mum said...

Maggie - I think he has; would have been a lot less work just to open a tin of beans!

Kelloggsville - I think so, he did ask for a second helping

Insomniac Mummy said...

LOL! My hubby would probably have said the same!

LOL mine would have said exactly the same!

Working Mum said...

Scrappy Sue - his alternative would have been to open a tin of beans!

Nicol said...

Lol! Love it! My Dh would have probably said the same thing. He would have eaten it and lied to me that he loved it only to find him in the kitchen half hour later looking for something else. Because he's still hungry.

Hi Mum, have spent a lovely 20 minutes catching up with you and your life. It sounds as if you have everything well organised, and Izzy's activities are just perfect - very creative. What a shame the other little girl didn't appreciate them. I loved the "fried egg in newspaper" clip, and the sound of your wii sporting antics. Your hotel looks just wonderful; I hope you all enjoy your break. M xx

I don't think that my husband could open a tin of beans!

Jacki said...

Hahaha....Peter is the same way. If I try to sneak in a vegetarian dish, he asks where the meat is.

I always know when he wasn't satisfied with dinner, because he will sneak into the kitchen later on looking for something to eat. :-)

Here's a tip - call them giant baked beans. Recaro loves them and even bought a jar of them home from Greece for a mate.

In his drinkers' den of a boozer there's few meals more manly than 'GIANT baked beans'.

Maybe your husband is simply more grown up than mine...
