The Daily EO: January 28th, 2013

I received a text saying my husband invited someone for dinner the next night.  This threw me into a little bit of a panic –  plan these things ahead, thinking out menus, grocery shopping, pre-prepping food, cleaning.  Everything is planned.  So, this was hard on me.  But then he said “Don’t worry about it, I’ve got it.”

Ok?

Hmmm.

Fine, I’m busy at work anyways.  Carry on.

So when I got home, Emile announced that he was going to make either Butter Chicken or Pad Thai.  I immediately tried to talk him out of butter chicken – afterall, neither of us have ever made it before and our guest was coming in less than 24 hours.  We are out of control – there isn’t a plan for this!

But do you know what? – other than rice and curry powder (easily purchased downstairs) – I already had everything on hand to make butter chicken and a readily accessible cook book with an excellent recipe.

January 28th, 2013 Extra-Ordinary:  It’s my planning and foresight and Emile’s spontaneity and willingness to try something new that works for us.  And his butter chicken was really good too.
