The Husband Catcher

The Husband Catcher I Lemons&Lunges

They say a way to man’s heart is through his stomach.  I agree with that statement whole stomachly.  However, there are different routes you can use to get there.  I, for one, know that I want to create meals that fill him up, but also won’t fill out my ass as much as it fills up his heart.  That means putting together “secretly” healthy dishes that don’t taste like wheatgrass on top of hay.  That route is called the scenic route… he’s happy and unknowingly healthy.

However, every once in while I just like to cut the healthy food foreplay and put together a meal that gets right to the what I know he’ll remember when that 21 year old walks by and gives him a little grin.  I call that meal, The Husband Catcher.  You really can’t go wrong with a grilled Filet Mignon, topped with caramelized blue cheese, mushrooms, and onions over sauteed garlic spinach. dayyyyyyyyymmmm girl.
