Tonight, I’m having some people over from work. The only problem is my wife is an amazing cook. I’m only, “good,” compared to her culinary skills.
So while I have time to spare, I’m double checking everything. If it’s not awesome and delicious to me, odds are very good my guests will hate it. The pesto sauce I just finished is unbelievable, fresh herbs, parmesean, salt & pepper…I could eat it by the spoonful. However, I have this nagging suspicion that if she was here, it would be even better. I’m trying on my own and I know, I have room to grow.
If the rest of the dishes I prepare tonight delight and surprise my own tastebuds, well, even if it’s not as good as when she cooks, at least it’ll be above the normal expectation. Or so I hope.
