Valentine's Day Supper

This was my Valentine's Day supper tonight.

We haven't had a grill for a few years, since disconnecting the gas line to build the porch. So this afternoon Mike went to the Ace Hardware and bought a small charcoal grill. He then stopped by the grocery store and bought ribeyes and baking potatoes.

He knows I'm running a low-grade fever and haven't felt well for a few days. So when I walked in the house he told me to go to the den and rest - I was not to do anything.

He cooked the potatoes, made the salad, baked some rolls, and grilled steaks. Since the charcoal was still hot, he cooked some chicken as well for later in the week.

Then he cleaned everything up.

And this is from a man who just got off night shift this morning.

What do you think of that!!

I think that is just wonderful! The food looks wonderful, too! Glad you have a husband who cares! Thank God!

Honestly, my first thought was "Wow, that's one big potato." And then I thought "what a nice brother-in-law I have." And then it was "That meal looks way better than the leftover lasagna I had."
