A.K. Valley’s only flaw

002-IMG_2741I adore my husband, viagra sale Anthony K. Valley (@akvalley on Twitter). He is just about perfect. But he does have one glaring flaw: he doesn’t like red foods. Yep, you heard it here, folks. Anthony doesn’t like tomatoes, strawberries, watermelon and most other red foods. I’m not sure when or where this defect originated, but it does interfere with marital bliss. See, I’m a cook of sorts, and one of my stable recipe ingredients is the Arkansas tomato. I get a bunch of them weekly in our CSA. The cherry tomato plant was about the only thing in my container garden that survived the summer. I cook with tomatoes several times a week. Initially when I learned of this red-food aversion, I tried to deflect a potential conflict by making him something else. But I’m done. He’s a grown man for heaven’s sake. He can eat tomatoes with the rest of the civilized world!

He is slowly coming around. Toniphoto(47)ght I made pizza pasta with reduced-fat pepperoni, whole wheat egg noodles, grated Parmesan cheese, and homemade tomato sauce. He ate it — and even went back for seconds!  I think our marriage has a chance after all.

  1. Not liking tomatoes AND watermelon is almost unamerican and certainly un southern. I do hope Anthony gets over this soon!
