~Sundays Supper Surprise~

My hubby,Doug gave me a grocery list of things that he needed to make a surprise Supper on Sunday. He wouldn't tell me what he was making but I only knew some of the ingredients.I went and got all the ingredients on my list Friday. So Sunday finally rolls around.It was around noon and  I was told I was not allowed in the kitchen until it was time to eat. I had no problem with that. He recruited 2 of our 3 teens to help prepare the meal. Well about 3 hours later. He called me up for supper. Was I ever impressed.There on my plate was this juicy, tender chicken with potatoes,carrots,celery and onions. I asked what it was and he still wouldn't tell me. I had to wait til supper was over for him to tell me. Let me tell you. This was an awesome meal. I am really impressed with this meal. I actually made him promise to make it again soon. He finally told me it was 40 Clove Garlic Chicken.I would of never thought that.. It didn't have a strong taste of garlic at all. With 40 Clove Garlic in its name.You would of thought it would of. I wish I had a picture to show you how good it looked but he didn't think to take one. I did get a pic of dessert that I made that morning. We have a new tradition on Sundays now. I make a surprise dessert and hubby and the kids make a surprise supper. Actually the kids make it but hubby is there to supervise.
