I don’t cook dinner very often. I think Jean prefers it that way. Her degree is in bio-chemistry. Not only is she smart, but she naturally thinks in terms of precision. Recipes are to be followed. If the instructions call for one cup of flour, she’ll measure exactly one cup. She’ll even use a knife to scrape off the excess, so the amount is perfect. I’ve even seen her add more if it’s not quite full.
Me? Well, let’s just say I’m more of a “free spirit.” I think scraping away excess flour is a waste of time. I just throw the ingredients together in a bowl. My measurements are usually close enough to make the recipe work.
But more often than not the final product could be described as “sort of missing something.” My dinners are good, but they’re not great. They usually need a little salt, a little pepper, a little “something” to really make them come alive.
A little spice can make a big difference.
It’s true for a recipe, and it’s true for a marriage. Some of you have a good relationship, but not a great one, and you could benefit from a little “something” to make it really come alive.
