As it turns out, yesterday was National Men Make Dinner Day. I thought that was interesting, and also not likely to happen at my house. Joe used to cook some when we first got married, but it was very little. He would man the grill for the most part, and occasionally cook us breakfast. Joe has pretty much handed all of the cooking over to me, and I have pretty much handed it over to takeout or scrounging. So, when Joe saw my Facebook post, he started coming up with ideas of dinner.
Part of the rules of this National Day was that he had to use at least four ingredients and more than one utensil for cooking. My favorite part of the rules was that it said wearing an apron was optional. Lol! I tried my best to get him to wear an apron for me, but that didn’t happen. Lol! It turns out, a lot of my Facebook commenters thought Joe looked too “fine” to slave away in the kitchen. He LOVED all of those comments. I am not sure how he got his swelled head through the kitchen door as he brought me a Chicken Pot Pie from KFC. LOL! That was his idea of cooking, and he pointed out that it was made with more than four ingredients. Gotta love him!!!
I am wearing my Cable Dot sweater again from Cato Fashions. The last time (here) that I wore this sweater, I wore it with a fedora and corduroy pants. Today’s outfit is more on the feminine side than that one. I love a cable knit sweater, and I am especially drawn to them if they are made of a soft material. I am not a fan of scratchy wool for anything that is going to be touching my body. I bought this sweater in size XL so that it could be oversized and longer than what they show on the website. Sizing up works for that purpose as long as the item is not too large under the arms. Here is the link to the sweater, and I am linking to a few others that I love.
This Leopard print scarf makes this outfit pop! This is a perfect example of how I say that accessories make the outfit. The entire outfit is all neutral colors, and they can get boring if you don’t add something to make the outfit zing. Sometimes we zing the outfit with a pop of color, today the zing is a pop of print. Here is the link to the scarf, and it is only $25.00.
Someone asked the other day if corduroy is still in style, The answer is, yes, and with a vengeance. It seems that the wide-wale material is what is in style for the skirts. I love the cute skirts, but they all seem to be on the shorter side. So, I added a pair of tights to the look to make me feel more comfortable. The tights that I wore are a pair that I have had for a while, and I never noticed how much they look like skin. When I pulled up the photos, I thought that I had a tan. LOL!
I know that you gurls are all crushing on Joe, but ladies, he is all mine. Haha! You can keep your sweet-talking, gourmet cooking fellows, and I’ll keep my smart-mouthed, run by KFC kind of man. He is just right for me! Lol!
