You Sexy Thang

After many years of marriage, sometimes the sparkle begins to wear off. You're still in love, can't imagine being with anyone else, but the spice and savor are gone, and a dreary sameness starts to take over. You settle into a routine so predictable that it's hard to work up enthusiasm for executing the maneuver one more time.

And, honestly, I think this is a lot harder on the husband than it is on the wife. We just have so many more things to fill our time....

But when you're married to a wonderful man like Old Dog, it doesn't have to stay that way. Shy as he is, he will take matters into his own hands and step outside his comfort zone to make a mail order purchase to jazz things up, an electronic device to add some flavor and spice to life.

I was more than a little surprised, because he's never done anything like this before. I'd like to say he got my input before he made his purchase, to ensure that I would receive the maximum pleasure from the model he chose, but he didn't, and honestly, his instincts served him well, because I love the one he picked out.

The evening it arrived in the mail, I poured us each a drink and set aside some quality time to investigate the bliss that such a gadget can provide.



Since then, I've made Beef Bourgignon, Risotto with Peas, Acapulco Chicken and Italian Sausage Soup with my new pressure cooker.

Seriously, folks, the food around here these days is orgasmic.

  1. I don't know where I'd be without my pressure cooker. My chickpeas are ready in less than 15 minutes for hummus, instead of 1.5 hrs....love it :)

  6. It takes a special kind of man to buy that for his mate, & a special kind of woman to appreciate it.

    That is all this unmarried, barely cooking woman will say.

  7. Wow. I would never buy my wife an appliance (for cooking) unless it came with an armor-plated codpiece for me to wear while she opens it.

  9. Great post!
    "I believe in miracles, since you came along," will float through my mind all day. That's cool, I love that song.

  10. Your humor is way up my alley, little lady! I did think it was a crockpot as first, however. Shows you what I know!

  12. Great thing! Perhaps you should do some recipes because I have had a pressure cooker for ten years now, and I still don't know how to use it.

    I was worried for you for a few minutes, there, Jeanne. and I am thinking..."Jeanne!!! What ARE you doing??? This is the internet!!! This will never go away!!!"

    I should have looked at the picture a little closer.

  17. True love, they say, is measure entirely by kitchenware.

  18. Adorable.

    And the ugly son, well I'm pretty sure that he was the one that got all the girls because he was very funny.

  21. Great idea I need to heat thangs up a bit at our house. I heard this morning that a woman of my age should have had at least four sex partners..I am way behind.. :)

  22. You had me for a minute. Maybe I should look into one for my wife if you like yours that much.

  23. That Old Dog is very clever. That is possibly the most beautiful pressure cooker I have ever seen...

  24. My mother had the old fashioned kind, with that little round thing you put on the top and it whistled when it was done?

    My sister gave me her gigantic crock pot because she couldn't figure it out. Now I can't figure it out. And yes I know it's supposed to be easy but I'm the kind of cook that just goes through shelves looking for stuff and then throws it all together.

  25. Ha! That's hilarious!

    Just remember to keep it in the kitchen :)

  26. Smartie.
