The Way to a (Pregnant) Woman's Heart

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
Green beans
One can of cream of mushroom soup
Frozen spinach
Salt
Pepper
Garlic powder
Butter
Milk
Oil

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.

  1. Good job! And spinach is great for pregnant women because of the high iron content. :)

    1. Thanks! I don't know how I ever disliked spinach. I was a fool. It is one of the tastiest veggies on the planet!

  2. Ah, I have often thought that the food cravings during pregnancy is God's way of letting women finally understand why food is so important to men.

  3. Never thought of it that way. Although I guess its just kind of the converse of what I said. ;-)
