My Husband the Problem Solver

One of my husband's many talents is problem solving. He is really pretty good at it, but I have to confess sometimes it annoys me. He almost enjoys finding problems in order to solve them.

Now one of my flaws is that I sometimes like to ignore problems. I hate confrontation, and I prefer to think happy thoughts rather than work through problems.

Lately, though the problem solving has really come in handy. After cooking a ham for a family celebration my Mr. wanted to add a glaze, but he wanted it browned to perfection. The ham was rather large and the perfectionist wanted a perfectly even, shiny finish. He had been thinking on it the whole time the ham was baking. "I've got it!" he said suddenly and jumped out of his chair and headed to the truck. In just minutes he was back with a torch in his hand. I wasn't sure how this was all going to end, but I must say the results were very becoming. I accused him of going all Food Network on me. He grinned showing he enjoyed the accusation. I have to admit, not only is he good at problem solving, He's also a really good cook!!


  1. That's one way to ensure your ham looks worthy of a magazine cover. It looks delicious.

  2. oh wow. I can see Jim doing that now!!! Funny!
