I know I shared many times that Chris and I couldn't be more different. In our personalities, our tastes and many of our opinions. This is even true in the kitchen, although thankfully I've come a long way since our marriage. I now love fish, sushi and even slightly spicy things thanks to Chris. If it were up to him everything would be doused in the hottest sauce imaginable.
One time in Mexico he took a taste of hot sauce at some sample store and was honestly squatting in the store, sweating and crying. Yet said it was delicious.
Speaking of opposites, I'm sure like most men Chris could care less about the set up of Thanksgiving meal and decorations. I on the other hand love decorating for seasons and special days. If I could pick something new off of the Target registry to prepare for hosting Thanksgiving dinner I'd pick a new set of dishware, as we still have the ones we got ten years ago. Chris on the other hand cares way more about the cooking part and would pick a new Calphalon stainless steel pan.
Being opposites we have to compromise a little in terms of cooking. My speciality is more in the baking department than in the cooking (again, opposite of Chris), but it's hard to find a dessert that we both love. I often volunteer to bring the dessert, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls is perfect because Chris loves the salty peanut butter and I love the sweet chocolate.
Mix the peanut butter, brown sugar and powdered sugar together. Roll into 1 inch balls. Place the dough in the refrigerator until cool.
To melt your chocolate I've used two pans to make a double boiler, with water on the bottom and the melted chocolate on the top. Dipping things in melted chocolate stresses me out because I feel like if you don't go fast enough your chocolate will harden, but this way it stays hot and melted the whole time!
Dip the balls into the chocolate and set on wax paper to cool. Keep in the refrigerator or even the freezer to eat later. Serve it on a cute fancy new dishes and you're good to go!
Being opposites does make us a good team. He can cook the main dishes, adding spices to make them tastiers. I'll bake dessert and set up the table. All we need is some music playing on a Sonos Play wireless system. Agreeing on the music may be an issue, but I think I win as Christmas music is a definite must on Thanksgiving!
