I wanted to make dinner really special for my hubby tonight. He is one of those amazing husbands that works hard all day and then comes home and plays with the kids, talks (well, mostly listens) to me, and does the dishes after dinner. He is great so I thought I would make his dinner extra special today!
I made everything from scratch and it took most of my day, but it was going to be so worth it. I had fresh rolls on the counter, zucchini bread cooling on the rack, cubed potatoes ready to boil, and a chicken roasting in the oven. The house smelled soooo good...and it wasn't even Scentsy this time!
Just as everything was going so well I realized it was time to take the lid off of the chicken to let it brown. I slid the heavy pan out and lifted the lid...woooosh! The steam was so hot that my eye lashes felt as if they melted back into my eye lids! I just kept on going being the happy little homemaker that I was. Dinner was going to be great!
I walked back into the bathroom to make myself look a little cuter (now this is sounding like that 1950 Good Housekeeping email that was circulating for a while!) I took one look in the mirror and noticed that I looked really frazzled. My day hadn't been THAT bad-what the heck?! I took a closer look and my hair was burned...yep, melted right up the sides!
Needless to say, Jay loved dinner, but his little wifey didn't look nearly as good as the chicken. By the way, anyone have any ideas for a cute short haircut? I'm going in tomorrow morning.
