Compliments to the Cook
Art, mom and I were eating dinner the other night and we were telling her how much we were enjoying what she had cooked. I think it was grilled mackeral, some coleslaw and miso soup. We love her cooking and tell her so every night. Art was telling her that the miso soup had just the right amount of miso and lightness of taste that we like. The fish was perfection. Her coleslaw is always special and I could eat it as a main dish.
She told us, "You both are always telling me how much you like what I'm cooking. It feels very good to get compliments and I enjoy cooking that much more when I know you enjoy it. I have a friend whose husband never says anything and she is an excellent cook! She is very discouraged to not be appreciated. I am lucky you both always appreciate what I prepare."
She cut her finger yesterday so I had to take over the cooking. I could see today that she was feeling pretty antsy to take her kitchen back. And you know what? I'm glad to give it back!
