I pulled a pork loin out of the refrigerator and slopped a mixture of mustard, apple cider vinegar, and basil on it. Then I tossed it in the oven. "I have to go to work," I announced. "Can you pull this thing out of the oven when it's ready?"
"Sure," my husband said.
I left. A few hours later, when I came back, I asked my husband how the pork was.
"It was good, but it took a lot longer to cook than you said."
"Oh. That doesn't surprise me," I replied. "It was a little bit frozen when I put it in the oven."
"What? You marinated a frozen loin?"
"Partially frozen," I corrected.
"Woman, that's like frosting a frozen cake."
"So? You can frost a frozen cake. Just like you can marinate a partially frozen loin. Just deal with it!"
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why I don't work in a fancy restaurant!
When you don't have time, you don't have time!ReplyDelete
I bet frosting a frozen cake is much easier than one not frozen.
Yes, actually, it is!Delete
LOL I agree with Alex—and I always partially freeze my cakes before icing them. :)ReplyDelete
Shows you what my husband knows about baking!Delete
His response " "It was good..." is all I would have to hear.ReplyDelete
I do the majority of the cooking, and very seldom do I get "It was good".from my kids.
Ha! My kids are the same way - unless I make pizza or burgers.Delete
fuss fuss whine whineReplyDelete
He should be glad you put dinner in the oven.
I think you should have had frosted frozen cake for dessert (-:ReplyDelete
That would've been the icing on the cake! ;0)Delete
We must cut corners sometimes. If it's edible at the end, it's alright.ReplyDelete
That's the way I feel about it, too.Delete
Lol. ..very funny!ReplyDelete

Very funny and the bottom line is that " It was good!" That's the most important thing!ReplyDelete
It's always good when I get a positive remark on the slop I serve!Delete
Hahaha sounds like something I'd do too. :-)ReplyDelete
Sometimes you just don't have time to let things thaw out completely!Delete
Another day of cooking for the mama.Delete
LOL, he's not the one who has to prepare and cook the thing, so he has no right to think this technique is crazy...ReplyDelete
Ha! I like your thinking!Delete
Love it! sounds like a conversation I would have!~ReplyDelete
I think it's a conversation a lot of women would have with their significant other!Delete
There have been plenty of times I've started a roast or loin when it is partially froze. Just give it an extra hour or so and talk about moist! My guys always seem to be happy with the end result.ReplyDelete
