Oh dear my husbands having day surgery and he isn’t terribly impressed, mind you neither am I, colonoscopy here I come.
I have a recipe to share in my effort to be nice and make him some man food, here’s how it came about as I did in fact have another post prepared but this seemed more important for the time
I was sideswiped by a comment from my husband, you know when you open your mouth before you think, a trait of mine, and it’s called foot and mouth disease.
He has on occasions said that what woman go through is nothing, talking small world stuff like Pap smears. Silly man!
Clearly he has had nothing cold, large, and metal stuck up somewhere, where it doesn’t belong.
As I am truly evil, and after being told I wouldn’t know what it’s like, well to be fair neither would he, I just couldn’t help myself but spread the good word.
Not that I’m not sympathetic, I just have care factor zero when you make stupid comments, it’s called payback. Nothing is going to be wrong with him because he is invincible and my husband so therefore nothing will happen and he will be fine. He isn’t allowed to carck it just yet at least not before me.
Feeling ever so smug with myself thanks to Mrs. WoogsWorld, and her recipe.
Which remarkably, I had all the ingredients in the cupboards and the fridge and it looked like great man food.
- Thick tomato
- Red wine
- Spring onions
Now since husband was going to be on a three day clear liquid diet due to his medical procedure that I am pretty sure will be uncomfortable, not that there is anything wrong with him, a sniff of family history and he’s gone into panic mode, quite rightly so as well.
Bear in mind he wouldn’t go to the doctors unless he’s forced to, also he is healthy as, never gets sick, in fact after 30 years I could count on one hand when he has been sick.
Due to pending procedure I thought I would step it up a bit and cook him a man’s meal. You know the one, lots of meat, chilli and spices.
Because quite frankly he’s on his own with this clear liquid diet, for three days before his procedure. I am clueless as to what to make for him so all suggestions will be gratefully received, before you feel too sorry for him he is allowed beer, I don’t get that he is allowed beer which contains wheat. Obviously rules made up by another man let’s not take away their coping mechanism. I maybe couldn’t do without my wine for three days so fair call.
So not being totally heartless I figured he deserves some man food for the rest of the week. Before he loses the plot and crumbles at my feet, fortunately he can’t quite see my amusement at his predicament as I bite my tongue and laugh on the inside, it’s becoming difficult to keep a straight face as he mopes around the house (big baby).
So let’s take stock here of what I go through which apparently is of not much consequence according to mouth almighty:
Many years and years of Pap smear test, the older you get the longer it seems
- Two emergency caesareans
- Invasive breast surgery on both breasts
- Years of Mammograms
- Breasts pummeled between two Perspex slabs
- 12 Needle biopsies
- Numerous blood tests (fear of needles, after spending six weeks in hospital before second daughter was born, on a permanent drip)
And what has he ever had STUFF all.
So now it’s his turn and I secretly think he’s freaking out, as he has had no preparation or experience of any kind, nor has he had anyone interfering with his private parts, oh dear.
So this fabulous recipe I made thanks to Mrs Woogs World, now I have set the bar a bit high and will have to keep it up for the rest of the week.
I did make a few adjustments to the recipe, as we don’t have to accommodate children’s tastes.
- I substituted the rice for pasta
- Added chilli flakes
- Added garlic
- My chorizo sausage is laced with pepper and red wine
Don’t forget any clear soup recipes please send my way, first advice I have had is Jelly, can’t be red or orange in colour.
