Chelsea is way too good to me, daily catering to my t-buds (slang for “taste buds”). She generally limits her cooking ventures because of my distaste for a few of her choice ingredients–but, on the positive end, I’m fairly easy to please (PBJ-4-lyfe!). So sometimes we decide to make separate meals so that we can each eat what we want to eat. Each of us experimented in the kitchen recently. Here’s what happened:

Chelsea seemed to have a like-hate relationship with her homemade curry (and because “hate” outweighs “like”, I doubt she’ll make it for herself again). But kudos to her for sticking it to The Man by making a meal for herself instead of her man–she deserves it!
My recipe, however, was a complete success–and completely juvenile.

I present to you, How to Make Off-Brand-Honey-Nut-Cocoa-Puffs:
In the end, the best meals are the ones we share (and generally the ones that Chelsea cooks). Not long after The Curry Incident, Chelsea surprised me with a romantic dinner:
Chelsea’s my favorite.
