Jug of Wine A Loaf of Bread and Thou – Omar Khayyam
My husband and I have been married for a long time. How long? It doesn’t matter. That is not what post is about. You can allow your marriage to become stale at any point of your life. Things happen. Life happens. School. Work. Kids come into your life. So often couples get so caught up in all of this, they forget each other The relationship gets put on the back burner.
This has happened to my husband and I. And it happened early on in our marriage. We were both caught up in our careers and family issues that we drifted apart. Well, we got married, because we loved each and wanted to spend our life together. We laughed and played. We were better people, because we there for each other.
So we decided that we needed to do something! That’s when we came up with our “date night”. We would set a certain amount of time aside to spend together. We could go for a movie. One time we took cooking classes together at our local community college. If we were tight for money, we would just go to the lake front and walked. And this was our time to really talk to each other. We talked about what was really bothering us. Or our dreams. We came closer together and when we had real problems to deal with, we had that strong bond that help us get through everything.
We kept this up for years. Even when we had our son. If we couldn’t get someone to stay with him, we would have a special dinner at home. A lot of times we made it together. Which was fun!
We had drifted away from that in the past year. This week I decided to do a one of our “date nights”. I decide that it would be simple and easy. One of our favorite dinners in the past has been baked Brie, a loaf of French bread, and strawberries. And or course some chardonnay wine. What do you think?
I really don’t care for Brie baked in puff pastry. I like it simple. Here is what I did for the Brie.
You need 3 ingredients. A wheel of Brie. Sliced Almonds. And a tablespoon of butter or margarine. That’s it!
Placed the Brie in a pie or cake pan. Top with the butter or margarine. Sprinkle the sliced almonds on it. Bake in an over that has been preheated to 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Voila! How hard is that? And you can do this baked Brie for parties and people will go crazy over it!
I want to thank my friend Tina for the idea for this post. We were talking husbands today!
