When the Husband’s away…

The wife will….COOK! I like to try new recipes when Joc is traveling. I will always eat what I make, and it’s a good taste test before Picky Pants attempts to branch out. So for tonight, I’m thinking something Mediterranean. I’m turning a salad into a meal (and I promise it’s not potato salad, which I’ve always hated but now love, but only vinegar based potato salad) and I intend to gobble it all up!
