Marital Dilemmas


I wanted to let you in on some marital dilemmas we have had over the years.  We have learned to deal with it but, when my husband and I first got together we had some issues to work out.  When I look at this list I’m surprised we have lasted this long.  I mean some of these offenses could end a relationship.  Especially a girl like me who is all Texan.

First offense

He is a White Bread Person.                     I am a Wheat Bread Person.


This problem has been solved by compromising on the Whole Wheat Bread.  The logic to this is obviously Whole Wheat is better for you.  Enough said.

Second Offense

He is a Mayonnaise Person.         I am a Miracle Whip Person.


This problem was not solvable.  We get a big jug of Mayo for him because he eats a lot of sandwiches and I get a little jar of Miracle Whip.  If I am out I guess I can eat Mayo and if he is out, Tough!

The next problem was totally offensive to me and I have learned to be “okay” with it.

He is a  Pepsi Person.             I am a Dr. Pepper Person.

This was not solvable either.  We get both Dr. Pepper and Pepsi.  WE ALL KNOW which one is better! But I keep my mouth shut.  I must really love him for that.

At least we agree on one thing, and that is the brand of ketchup.

Nothing else compares.

Do you and your man dispute on any food items?  Mrs. Baird’s Vs. Nature’s Own, Blue Bell Vs. Breyer’s? Whole Pickles Vs. Sliced?

Last Meal


I watched a show on The Cooking Channel the other day that asked famous chef’s what they would want as their last meal.  They were picking these great dishes from fancy restaurants or complicated meals from home town dives.  I then saw a blog that asked what is your favorite meal and it made me think what mine might be.   This is such a hard question because fatty loves some food!  I’m one of those people who takes a first bite of something and will literally go Mmmmmm before I put the fork down loud enough for the people at the table to hear me and sometimes I don’t even know I am doing it.  I love food!

Normally I am a steak and potatoes type of girl and I will have to say my favorite type of food is Mexican because I can eat that all the time any time and not seem to grow old with it.  But man do I love me some Seafood!  That is more like a special treat because we don’t get it often, because of cost.

But if I were to pick what my last meal would be I would have to say that I’m a much simpler girl then all of that and because it would be my LAST meal and because I am sentimental and because of the nostalgia factor my last meal would be.

Mom’s Poor Man’s Lasagna with a Red Lobster Caesar Side Salad and Cheddar Biscuits and because I am Texan thru and thru an ICE COLD Canned Dr. Pepper!  There is just something about a canned Dr. Pepper.  For dessert a simple Chocolate and Yellow Marble cake with Chocolate Frosting and again ICE COLD Fat Free Milk.  I say Fat Free because I am use to it and anything else would seem too thick in consistency.

So what do you think?  What is your Favorite Meal or what would you choose as a Last Meal.  Remember you can have anything from any where you have ever eaten.  So you might have an entrée from one restaurant and a dessert from another or your Grandma’s home cookin’.   PLEASE SHARE What you would choose.
