I have become more and more convinced over the course of my wife's current pregnancy of one simple truth: God invented pregnancy so that men could have a small shot at finally connecting with women. This may sound counter-intuitive; women are generally even more emotionally involved during pregnancy than not, and men tend to be more lost at those times than not. But I finally realized that a woman's desires during pregnancy finally center around one simple thing that guys can completely relate to. That desire would be for food. A constant stream of food.
If you're a chef of any skill or persuasion, your pregnant wife will love you to death if you cook for her. I thank God He gave me some skill with a skillet, and here I present for your consideration a dish I concocted during a pregnancy food emergency. Enjoy!
The ingredients are:
One fillet of flash-frozen chicken
One can of cream of mushroom soup
I fried the spinach first in butter, a little bit of water, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. When the spinach was done, I put it in a separate bowl and put the chicken in with more butter and a bit of oil. Once the chicken was finished, I put it on the spinach on the plate, and smothered the entire thing with a quick sauce I had made in the microwave with about a third of the can of soup and a dash of milk in the microwave. Then I microwaved the whole thing for about a minute just to bring it all up to the proper warmth.
The green beans I simmered in salt water for just long enough to cook them slightly, leaving them a bit crunchy at the end.
