Most Excellent Wife

Most Excellent Wife June 13, 2014

Last weekend, we ended up at that market in the city where we buy our beef bacon. Each time we go, Khaled ends up finding some sort of adventurous food item to introduce to the children.

The first time we went, he brought home rabbit. Last weekend, he brought home bone slices. I can’t remember what he called them, but he was super excited. I asked some general questions and Khaled explained that these were the shin bones of the cow.

I was completely perplexed and mortified all at the same time. They have no meat on them. I had no idea what to expect.

We invited our friends over and while Khaled boiled the bone pieces, I acted as the sous chef and prepped different ingredients – never looking into the pot.

After it was all said and done, I took a deep breath and snapped this photo.


I knew I had to share it with you.

That night, I was declared to be the best wife ever.

Happy Friday.
