Has anyone ever had that one husband who just plain doesn’t get it when it comes to all things you? I love my husband to death but that’s totally him. No I’ll rephrase, that’s totally my husband when it comes to anything involving housework or anything kitchen wise.
My husband has many talents, but doing anything in the kitchen, is not one of his strong suits. I am not sure how he managed to make himself a simple meal before. Years back I caught him attempting to make a frozen pot pie. Easy right? Read directions, insert into microwave, cook. Think again. My husband took the pot pie out of the cardboard box it came in, as well as the tin foil container it is meant to cook in. He then managed to put it in the microwave and blow the pot pie up.
I assume his lack of cooking is a factor as to why he enjoys watching a YouTube channel about ijustine cooking. If you have ever seen it, she is like my husband. It’s a hilarious cooking YouTube channel where ijustine uses a blender to mix all of her ingredients for the recipes she attempts to make each week. She then guesses her way to finish cooking the product. Definitely look it up on YouTube if you want a good laugh.
Well this year for Christmas I was hoping to save up money to finally get a kitchen aid mixer. The mixer of all mixers!
We were over at my husbands grand parent’s house for Christmas and his grandmother asked me if I was excited for my mixer. My husband quickly interrupted rather annoyed. He said he had gotten me something that will mix things for me. I was extremely excited, I thought he meant he had actually purchased me a kitchenaid mixer. Until he told me what he purchased… He gotten me a blender, the exact blender that ijustine used on her cooking videos. He explained that it mixes things, she uses it and he thought it would be a good mixer for me. I was torn between laughing at what had happened and just plain confusion. How do you mistake a kitchenaid for a blender, they don’t even do remotely the same thing. I thought he had gotten a $200 blender thinking it would be sufficient for cooking. Better then a kitchen aid mixer is how he described it.
The next morning we did Christmas at my aunts house and I opened a cooking book from my parents. A kitchenaid cooking book. I looked at my husband and asked how I was going to use that with a blender. My dad spoke up and said Santa had left another present for me in the garage. Let’s just say I’m the asshole in this story. My husband was covering for my parents. He didn’t want the surprise to be ruined that I actually did get a kitchenaid. He had me completely convinced he had bought me a blender, with an elaborate story to back it all up. I completely believed him because of his extreme lack of understanding how to cook or anything involving the kitchen. Nice one babe, very nice.
Never underestimate your husband!
