The greatest compliment

My husband hates spaghetti.  The kids and I love it.  It’s quick, easy and tasty.  We usually only have it when Brian’s out of town for business.  As most of you know, I’ve been couponing and trying to save money on the grocery bill lately.  Spaghetti is also a cheap meal when you have a coupon for the pasta and sauce, and score a great deal on the ground beef.  And do you know what?  (This is where the compliment comes in)  Brian said “this is the best spaghetti you’ve ever fixed!”.  Brooke started talking to me at the same time, and I had to hold up my hands to stop her.  I needed to revel in the moment.  So I asked him to say it again!  AND HE DID!  What makes this so spectacular, you ask?  We have been together for almost 16 1/2 years, and married for 14 this coming July.  That’s a lot of spaghetti.  (I used to fix it monthly until I decided it was not fair of me to ask him to eat it so often.) 

The only thing I did differently is jazz up the plain old sauce with sauteed onions and garlic, and chopped up a can of Red Gold diced tomatoes with roasted onion and garlic.  I’ll have to do that again.  He actually started off with a small portion, and got a second helping.  I also made homemade breadsticks, garlic of course!  Anyway, I just had to share this wonderful compliment I received from my loving husband.
