you know im not good at cheese. that's usually me at the left, rolling my eyes at any romantic gesture offered to me. but i fell in love again. giddy, silly, school-girl love. with my husband. we are a perfect match. all the cheese that involves yin/yang, black/white, and any other mushy reference to story book love.
for example, last night we spent about 4 hours of adventurous cooking - together. it was his idea and though this is our 'us time' activity of choice, i am always so excited and surprised when this happens. i so often hear about husbands who when watching the kids always default for pizza and tacos. or those who will only eat the traditional male meal: meat. not to mention the cooking part, i mean he could have been watching 4 hours of hulu while i destroyed the kitchen.
last night we made curried lentils ala Dr. Weil and my dad's honey molasses angel biscuits. all after 7 pm. i completely forgot i was tired as hell and had a week of working nights ahead of me. but we've always had the most fun in the kitchen together and working nights has been extremely hard on the us time so i ate it up.
so with all the provolone, swiss, and cheddar i can muster - oh how i love this man...

1 tb molasses

2. Mix together flour, salt, oil, water, honey, and molasses.
3. Add yeast mixture.
