What Did I Ever Do?

To deserve only the best husband (aka SUGAR) in the world? He is too, too good to me. He worked from home yesterday. Well, in truth, he worked at home yesterday doing things around here most of the time.

He does most of the laundry, gathers it up, washes, dries, (if it can't be dried, he hangs it up to dry), folds and takes it to the room it belongs in. He probably does about 15 loads of laundry a week. He did about 5 loads yesterday. One of his goals during these long, boring winter nights was for us to get closets and cabinets cleaned out. He started on the extra bedroom yesterday. He was in there for a couple of hours working. I was in my office and I could hear him banging things around, then later on vacuuming. All the while still doing his actual work-work at Emory. We have a really big garden tub and I love to take a hot bubble bath. It's virtually impossible to fill that tub up before the hot water runs out, so what does he do? He boils water for me to pour in the tub. He makes our coffee every single day, freshly ground coffee no less. He makes sure Cam gets up and off to school if I don't have to get up for work. Most of all, he puts up with me and my craziness.

So tonight I'm gonna cook that sweet hunka man something good to eat. I'm making these roast beef sandwiches with au jus cooked in the crock pot. I've never made it before, but it sounds really good. Then there's a recipe for an apple pudding pie in this month's issue of Southern Living that also looks good. Jeff typically doesn't eat sweets, but he does like apple desserts, so I'm going to give this one a whirl.

Here's the recipe for the Roast Beef Au Jus Sandwiches
2-3 pound rump roast
1 can beef broth
1 can french onion soup
1 bottle beer
salt and pepper
Cook in your crock pot on high most of the day. Shred meat and place on toasted French bread. Serve with side of Au Jus, which will be the broth in the crock pot.
How good does that sound? I'll let you know tomorrow how good it was.
Live, love, laugh and enjoy your day!

Jeff is a great guy! Definitely not your average husband. AND he's perfect for you... not just anyone would put up with your nonsense (Ha-Ha, just kidding, sorta).
LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE indeed :0)

Thanks, SUGAR! What goes around, comes around, if you know what I mean. You could have picked a better picture though.

What a man! Sounds like you should rent him out:) I bet there are very few that will do that kind of stuff for his beautiful wife. Dinner sounds great too. I will definitely try that one.

My husband is up there too... but he won't do closets. If he did he would toss everything! I just made roast yesterday!
