Gourmet Dinner

I get off work at 5:00pm everyday and my husband gets off work at 2:00pm everyday. After 9 hours of work, I get home and am beat! My slow cooker is like my best friend. It assists me in creating dinners without much work. My husband has a really hard time cooking. He tries, but his efforts aren't really successful. He can't make scrambled eggs, can't brown meat, and can barely boil water on his own. But tonight, I came home to a surprise. Aaron's friend Matt went to culinary school. Aaron called him for some advice. I walked in the door and was greeted by Aaron and he had a glass of wine for me. Then I walked into the dining room and saw the gourmet dinner on the table! I was so shocked and impressed at the same time! Aaron made chicken balentine. He got boneless skinless chicken breasts and beat them until they were flat. He put prosciutto, jack cheese, bell peppers, and onions on top of the meat and seasoned it with salt, pepper, and garlic. Then he rolled it until it was in the shape of a burrito and wrapped it in foil. After it cooked, he covered it in a white wine sauce that he made. It was soooo good and I am so proud of my husband for making me this great dinner. Thanks baby!
