I have the bestest husband ever!

So I (re)injured my knee the other day, being the klutz that I am, and couldn't walk at all Thursday night, all day Friday ~ got my knee brace for Saturday and Sunday so I'm hobbling okay now and icing it when I'm not.

In any case my darling husband decides to make dinner on Friday night and try out a new recipe. I am a little leery here cause you don't want to know what happened when he "seasoned" chicken with I'm not sure what but think pink meat and not the good kind of rare steak. I"m talking very unnatural bubble gum pink chicken...and then there was the time he added garlic salt to my home made macaroni and cheese,  but I digress...

I'm just happy that he has offered to make dinner and I can sit and ice my knee. He informs me that he is making Pasta Primavera. Okay, not one of my favorites at a restaurant. I'm not crazy about heavy sauces but again...I'm not having to make dinner so it's all good... but turns out IT WAS GREAT!!!!!  
I'm telling you, this was probably the best dinner at home or eating out that I have had in forever.  He roasted all the veggies in a little olive oil and spices ~ it was a party in my mouth. 

Never again will I question the man's cooking skills.  I'd have married him all over again (yes for the 4th time!)
In case you need to make some of your own ~ he used this recipe.

You'll have to try it and tell me what you think... In the mean time THANKS HONEY!  I love you!!!

nice! I'm jealous. My man can throw meat on a grill or make a frozen pizza, but that's about it.

Hope you're feeling better!

I'm jealous too - my husband would throw tomato sauce or salsa on it and call it a day, LOL!!! He makes up for it in other ways tho :D

Wow, what a hubby! Not sure what my hubby would throw together. Probably anything left in the fridge in a container! I think I'd be very scared!

I come via Freda's Hive and want to invite you over to my giveaway. It's my 200th post celebration. Hope I see you there!

PS. Love your blog.

Aww, don't we have some wonderful husbands? *smiles* Mine made a delicious pork chop dinner tonight.

We're lucky ladies! :)

I hope your knee feels MUCH better soon.
