That's why I thought the vegis were fine and he thought they were overcooked.

But, come on. He's a grown man. It should be his turn to cook once in a while and I have that stupid sore thumb.

Remind me not to eat at Elephant Bar again soon. I had the Macau shrimp soup, and salmon rolls. then got out the front door and embarrased myself by upchucking all over the place, color my face red and today of all days. Yeesh did I feel foolish or what?? Was it just me or something I ate?

awww, taxy. i didn't know that thumb was still causing you grief. is it any better at all?

i don't know about canadian men, but grown american men, most of them, not only don't cook/don't know how/refuse to learn, think it's a big gd deal if they take you out twice a year to a class b restaurant.

taxy, stirling cooked your steak a PERfect rare...and you... you...allowed...his...steak...to...burn...delibera tely...petulantly... :(
truly sorry about your thumb, though-- hope it gets all better real soon, taxy! :)

The thumb is almost all better, but I baked an easy chocolate cake yesterday and that made it worse, so I am being extra careful.

It wasn't just petulance. I told him what the problem was later and he agreed that he wouldn't have wanted my interference at that point.

I think the thing that really got me was that he was grumpy all through supper. If it hadn't been for that, I would have thought that calling me a "back seat cook" was funny.

Work with me. I need some sympathy.

A simple little chore turned into a moment of angst. Not worth an argument for sure. You did right by letting him finish on his own. One of those moments when a man refuses to ask for directions.

aw taxy, you know i'm always going to be on your side, right or wrong. :) i think you and stirling are really good for and to each other. for a guy, he seems to be truly decent, and treats you like you really matter-- that is big. in my book, taxy. sorry for the cynicism, but i've probably seen more than my share of selfish, lazy, self-indulgent guys.--- who don't cook, but rather expect to be waited on, hand and foot....

OUCH! Nothing like a sweeping generalization to get things going.

My ex wouldn't let me in the kitchen because '...the kitchen was her turf and she was perfectly capable...'.
