When I moved in with Greg, I had two rules—
- I’ll do the laundry if he cleaned the bathrooms.
- We divide up the week for cooking dinner.
We did great adhering to the dividing the cooking but suddenly stopped succeeding at it, mostly because Greg isn’t allowed to go to the grocery store alone due to his tendency to purchase more junk food than a 13 year old boy.
Side note: To be fair, he washes and dries the dishes when I cook.
With grad school complete, I decided it’s time to ease him back into cooking by making us dessert—a coconut custard pie. Now I call this recipe Coconut Dream Pie because it’s so easy for your husband to make, it must be a dream. If you can use a blender, you can make this pie.
Heck, you can even have your little ones helps make this dessert. Once it’s baked, no one will ever guess how easy it was to make. Please feel free to tell them you slaved over it for hours. The pie is surprisingly light for a custard pie and it forms three distinct layers which makes it even more interesting.
Hope you enjoy it!
