What’s that saying, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach? Well, I think that simple truth can be said for our children too.
Nothing can make my husband more of a puddle of love for me than when I cook something delicious. It all started when we first started dating, many many moons ago. Since we got together two weeks before Valentine’s Day, I wasn’t sure how I should proceed. To keep it on the safe side, I decided to bake him cookies. I figured it would be a thoughtful gesture. I mean, who doesn’t love cookies? I baked him Mrs. Field’s double-rich chocolate chip cookies. Bought a recipe book and everything.
What I wasn’t prepared for was my husband’s reaction to the cookies. He swooned into the bag of cookies. He swooned into me. With every bite he took, he gave a contented sigh and he stared at me with hearts in his eyes. I think he even hugged the bag of cookies.
I learned a huge lesson that day. Making this man food makes him happy.
We’ve been together for nearly seventeen years, partly because I haven’t forgotten that simple lesson I learned long, long ago. Happy wife (who cooks) + good food = happy life.
Guess what else I’ve learned? This “making good food” tactic works on pretty much anyone with a stomach. Delicious things bubbling on your stove makes your home feel cozy, inviting and yummy smelling. It makes your children excited and content and they feel like they have the best mommy in the world because she makes the best stuff to eat. Bottom line, people love to be spoiled by good food. It makes them feel loved.
Of course, this is my biggest area of struggle–being motivated enough to prepare a meal, day in and day out! I’d be lying if I said I “enjoyed” slaving over a hot stove everyday. This eCard just about sums it up.
I pull myself up by the bootstraps and figure out how to create something delicious and nutritious for my family. Again, it’s not easy. But I know how happy it makes my husband and children feel, and that is what motivates me to keep going.
What about you? Do you cook often? What is your family’s favorite meal?
