There's really not much better than when the person you care for states his enjoyment of a dish you've thrown together. He really likes when I roast a chicken (I got another one at the Farmers Market this morning, so roast chicken is coming this week), and that's nothing fancy. He likes when I do the salmon on papillotte, and that's just putting some stuff in tin foil and throwing it in my oven.
So two nights ago when I made another version of my Melting Pot Soup, and he told me that he really liked it, his praise put a smile on my face. This time, in addition to the chicken feta spinach sausage, I used some whole wheat elbow macaroni instead of orzo, baby bok choy, celery, onions, carrots, dried oregano, dried basil, and some red pepper flakes.
He loves it. And it's really easy to make. There's still a lot left, but it's going quick.
