By the grace of God himself, Dayne has managed to stick with his diet and is nearly halfway to his goal weight! I didn’t doubt his motivation in the slightest, it was my cooking that was a concern. Our new tradition includes cooking together on Friday evenings, whether it be “healthy” or cheat day. Today at about 1PM he texted me with a very specific request: stuffed mushrooms. Of course I delivered and we had a cheat treat to celebrate!
