Something I don't think I've talked about here is I hate GREEN vegetables! (actually most vegetables -- but especially green ones)
During my negotiations with Hands -- I jokingly said one of my hard limits was green veggies. He just went "hrmmmm" and we moved on.
We have had a few meals together -- but they didn't involve veggies.
On Wednesday evening I was over at their house for dinner...... a family dinner complete with kids. Dinner was spaghetti and stuffed ZUCCHINI. Zucchini is GREEN. Hands was sitting beside me and he passed the plate of zucchini to me. I smiled sweetly and said "no thanks" and He smiled back and said "oh yes I think you will enjoy these. My daughter made them". I looked up to see said daughter watching me. I smiled and helped myself to the smallest piece of stuffed zucchini on the plate -- and trust me -- it wasn't THAT small!!
That was one of the biggest tests of my submission we have had yet. I ate the whole piece........... just!
Last night I made dinner -- Thai noodles and chinese dumplings. I sent Hands a picture of my dinner -- just cause I was in a very cheeky mood. And the caption read " My dinner - note NO green veggies".
The "brat" is still very much alive!
