So tonight we're having a Moroccan Stew for supper with butternut squash and various other veggies. We were preparing everything last night so we could just pop it in the slow cooker.
I peeled the butternut squash and was attempting to cut through it when Mark came up and said that he would do that. He's standing there, cutting the squash into bite sized chunks and is not pleased at how difficult it is so he just declares that we are NEVER MAKING THIS AGAIN.
Once all the prep is done, he asks if there is any meat that needs to be cut up. I said no. He's all, no chicken? No, no chicken. No Beef?!? No, no beef. He's boggling at me so I say We're going FLEXITARIAN! And he's so confused and thinking I'm crazy until I explain that flexitarian means we have some vegetarian meals and some with meat. Which we do all the time. It was so funny, the look on his face when I said Flexitarian.
And then this morning, the onions needed to be sauted with the garlice before going into the slow cooker so Mark did that while I was showering. Once we go to work, he emails me saying, I think we need to change how we prep, the two guys next to me are complaining about the overpowering scent of onions. I'm all, screw them, it smells good! And then another guy later on says that Mark smells like spaghetti :D
I sure hope it's tasty. It's the first time we've ever made this recipe.
