A Simple Trick for Getting Dinner on the Table

What’s the most common question in any marriage? I would argue it’s “what’s for dinner?” When I used to commute, it was comical how many people made the call to figure out what to have to their spouse on the way home. Then there are the special people like me who figure out their meals […]
