A Challenge for MIRAGE727

Monday, December 31, 2012

I'm very lucky in many ways. One of them is that my husband is very, very good in the kitchen. He has made countless great tasting, healthy meals, and I'm grateful for this because I have a full time job and a rather long commute. When I get home from work, I have enough time to change my clothes and relax for a few minutes, and then I'm treated to a nutritious dinner. Without my husband's commitment to a healthy lifestyle (in large part by his willingness to make dinner), I know I wouldn't have had the weight loss success that I've achieved.

In an effort to help my hubby expand his (already stellar) culinary skills, I'm issuing a challenge to him for 2013. How will this challenge work? Each week I'll select a specific food, recipe, or cooking style to inspire him. All he has to do is make a dish incorporating what I've selected, and then post a picture of what he made. It's all in fun and something neither of us would have even considered before we began our healthy lifestyle journey.

So MIRAGE727, are you up for the challenge?

    What a GREAT challenge! You two are such a great team, and I'm looking forward to seeing the results of this 2013 initiative. Hopefully, he'll also share the recipes in case some of the rest of us want to give his creations a try! (Hint, Hint!)

Happy New Year to both of you! emoticon emoticon

    As soon as I saw that you had posted a blog with this title, a wave of uncertainty swept me. Then I realized you were playing the accountability card!
Why do I feel like I'm on Master Chef and I will be living the Mystery Box challenge?
I can do this! Bring it, D!
