My Second Date

My first date with my husband was nothing unusual. Well, except for his music choices for the night. He took me to a bar where they were doing Karaoke. He sang a few songs for me and then took me home. He told me later that he wasn't even sure that he would ask me for a second date, and I am so glad that he did.

Our second date was more memorable. I made him homemade chicken and noodles, mashed potatoes and green beans. He seemed to like it and ate quite a bit of it. I thought it was a little off, but still good enough to eat.

The next afternoon I heard from Dave. He asked me how I felt. I told him I was fine. He, on the other hand, had been sick all day. He blamed it on my food...Later I found out that the compressor in my refrigerator had gone out...all of the ingredients I had used in my meal had been in the fridge...and had gone bad...

So, I guess my advice here, make sure your ingredients are fresh!

After All That, We Are Still Together...And Happy!

LOL what a story! I'm glad he didn't rate you on that dinner and decided to marry you regardless. :) Chicken and noodle soup is great any way you make it. I noticed the celery seeds you've added. I haven't used those...wondering how much of a celery flavor it is.

Great advice: use fresh ingrediants, haha. Thanks for sharing Rated up/U/I

Denise...the celery seed makes the recipe in my opinion...I suppose I could use fresh celery for a similar result....I might try that!

You both look so happy in your photo, what a sweet story to share. I am sure that he knows he made the right choice in asking you out again. Chicken Noodle soup is a winner in this home any day.
