boy in the kitchen. girl at the camera.

tonight was ryan's turn at dinner.
he made the very same dish that turned my head when we were first dating.
this softened {somewhat} the blow of it snowing today.
which was devastating, because i adore autumn.
and because all day long i was freezing cold.
and because i could not work on our latest treasure {a writing desk} like i had planned.
but his dinner masterpiece filled our whole house with a warm, christmasy aroma.
and christmas, as we all know, is the only time when snow is acceptable.
so our evening was a cozy glimpse of the coming months,
and almost made me wish we were in the heart of winter.
if only for christmases sake.

he made:
cornish hens stuffed with rice
& sauteed asparagus

ryan loves {and i quote} how the rice gets crispy where it spills out of his bum.
not the most appetizing thought, but very delicious.
best. husband. ever.
