I live in house dominated by men…one husband, two sons, and even the dog is male. They are as manly as it gets…meat, potatoes, dirt, mud, guns, trucks, boats…totally male! Every once in a while, I cave and give them a break from girly food and perfect platings. Needless to say, I have to cater to the meat & potatoes gene every so often. Little do they know, even with meat & potatoes, I can have fun. Meat & potatoes doesn’t have to be boring.
