I didn't feel like going to the grocery store last night, so I put together a concoction of items left in the refrigerator. I combined broccoli, onions, garlic, mixed with some whole wheat pasta and olive oil.
Husband is a carnivore thinking man and expects his meat. We have different work schedules so we eat at different times. He works 3pm-11pm and I work 9-5pm. I prepared him for the dinner that awaited him while he was still at work with these persuasive points.
-A very healthy meal awaits you
-You don't always need to eat meat with a meal
-These are the kind of meals I enjoy
-Don't you want to live longer?
-Mind over matter. If you think it will taste good it will taste good.
This was the best I could do, but I was very stern. He would be eating his vegetables. He put up no argument and never mentioned any sort of problem with eating vegetables. This was a one sided discussion. Being the good husband that he is he came home and ate with no complaints, but no compliments either. He had a full belly and was content.
The next morning I woke up to finding this laid out next to the coffee maker, a sure place I would find something first thing in the morning.
Busted! My receipt from In-n-out Burger. Although I made him eat his vegetables, I had actually had a drive through hamburger incident. I thought I disposed of all the evidence, but obviously had failed. I threw out the bag and wrappings in the dumpster down the alley, cleaned up the plate with ketchup stains, and thrown out the receipt...so I thought. I made him eat vegetable while I indulged in a hamburger.
