His & Hers
Even though the husband and I don’t love all of the same foods, I usually try to make dinners that make us both happy without being too different.
Tonight that didn’t happen.
I really wanted more of last night’s vegetarian meatloaf, but I knew the husband didn’t love it as much as I did. Luckily, I predicted this in advance and pulled out some extra chicken parmesan from the freezer this morning. Sometimes you just gotta make meals for two.
We both started with some kitchen sink salad. I threw in whatever was in the fridge. Romaine lettuce, celery, Granny smith apples, red peppers, and goat cheese. I made a dressing inspired by the salad dressing from the maple vinaigrette from Saturday’s dinner, but minus the maple. I used equal parts red wine vinegar and olive oil, plus Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce.
(I toasted up some walnuts in coconut oil to add to my salad portion later.)
Veggie loaf for me:
Plus more tomato, basil, & garlic sauce on top.
Chicken parmesan & spaghetti with parmesan cheese & basil for the veggie-hatin’ hubby.
While I was preparing the salad, I decided I wanted roasted red peppers with my vegetarian meatloaf , so I stuck a red pepper in the oven at 450 degrees while I got everything else ready.
The roasted red pepper 100% completely totally made this dish. I wish I’d thought of it last night. I’m going to update my original recipe because this should definitely have red pepper with it every time. Oo roasted red pepper blended in to the tomato sauce would be just perfect!
Then I got distracted by the pretty dots the light was making through my glass of cabernet sauvignon. Yeah….
Do you eat the same thing as the other people in your house, or do you have different meals for different people?
