LET THEM THINK YOU FUSSED!
I love when I throw together a simple meal that takes me no time at all to create out of junk I find in the cabinet and fridge and then my husband walks through the door, sits down, eats it and raves about it for the next week. He’ll carry on like I slaved over it all day long. Oddly, when I do fuss over meals, he seldom makes a peep. I’ll have to look into that. Everyone should always have a dessert like this cinnamon apple crumb pie under their hat to bust out when you need something that looks like a million bucks but was totally thrown together with 5 pantry staple items. No one will believe you did so little to bring this monumental offering to life, I can assure you of this.
Case in point, we had some of my husband’s coworkers come for dinner and when they totally oohed and ahhed over this dessert, I tried to tell them how easy it was. They thought I was joking. “Oh don’t be so humble! You are such an amazing cook! I wish I could make something like this,” they went on and on about it. When no one listened to my pleas, I just smiled and went along with it. Sure, it took me HOURS upon HOURS. Not!
