It really goes without saying, but–especially during weeks like this one–I really love my husband. He’s been cooking, cleaning, doing yardwork, and more this week while I’ve been running around like a chicken with my head cut off. It’s going to be even worse next week–I hope he’s prepared!
Tonight, we’re preparing to entertain one of our favorite couples in the world, Tom and Suzzanne. While I was getting my hair cut, Eric was mowing, vacuuming, and making these delicious smelling Maple-Braised Pork Chops. We’ll serve them with skillet-fried potatoes and onions, fresh green beans, and our favorite selection of adult beverages. Eric has a huge man-crush on Tom, so I’m sure they’ll drink some of our favorite whiskey while Suzzanne and I sip something that better supports her low-gluten diet.
Thanks be to God for great friends and a husband so willing to keep house! We’re hosting another gathering tomorrow, and I hope to have much more to contribute then!
