The blessing of a new, and what seems more spacious, kitchen is that I was able to convince JW to make me dinner! I was smart and defrosted the ingredients I knew he knew how to use that morning, and just had to convince him I was too busy vacuuming.
JW's signature dish is Pasta and Sausages. To be honest, he makes his noodles better than I do. I never cook them long enough, and he does it just right. (Probably because I think he is paying attention to them, and he is waiting for me to tell him when they are done... so it's longer than I would have left them in! That's the trick...) He poached the sausages in 1/4" of water and steamed them by putting on the lid (they cook faster). Meanwhile, I finished vacuuming and was in charge of veggies.
While JW added sauce to the meat, I sauteed spinach in half a pan and brussels sprouts in the other half. Viola!
My kitchen staff pulled through! You didn't know I provided uniforms. Come on over!
