Lafayette, Lovers and Leftovers

Hey folks. First, I’d like to thank y’all for your generous input. I didn’t realize I had so many friends out there! This is a lot easier than just googling “how to be a vampire housewife” and sifting through all the crap on the internet.

So many of you - including Lisa Cheli, R.J., Andrew, and bite me - came up with the brilliant idea of microwavable dinners. Why didn’t I think of that?! Or more importantly… why didn’t HOYT think of that? katiln was right. Hoyt should understand how uncomfortable all this food stuff makes me and consider my feelings a little more. But still, there is one slight problem: Our microwave is where I heat up my Tru Blood. Call me crazy, but I don’t think I could stomach the residual smell of nuked mashed potatoes and chicken in there. And we just don’t have a crock pot, like Melinda and Dana Hilton suggested. I guess I could ask Bill for a housewarming gift, maybe one of those slow cookers, or an extra microwave? But I feel weird asking him for anything these days. I’m trying to make it on my own, you know? I don’t wanna come crawling back to daddy with my tail between my legs every time the waters get a little choppy. I’m sure sometimes I will, but I’d like to see if I can handle this one on my own.

I might have to try amber’s suggestion: bringing home leftovers from Merlotte’s. What does Lafayette do with all those extra biscuits at the end of the night, anyway? And he’s a lover, he’ll understand. If I explain my predicament to him, I’m sure he’d let me wrap up a few items before I go home if it means it can keep me n’ Hoyt together. If I haven’t screwed that up too badly already…

I think Hoyt will understand. As far as your food issue I am thinking the crock pot is a wonderful ideal. I can't believe those protesters messing with you. It's just so rude. Sorry you had to deal with that. I hope all is well.

Yes, Lafayette will hook you up with leftover if you ask. He's a lover. Yeah ya kinda screwed up but you're only 17 and you do need to live a little. Hoyt loves you and it will hurt him but he had to deal with that over bearing momma of his and he needs to live a little as well. You both need to grow up and find yourselves. Good luck Jessica and don't get mad at sookie she's got a lot going on as well.

I dont think youve screwed up Jessica your just new at this "house wife" thing as they so called it you just have to get use to it. I think Hoyt is gonna have to get use to it to because U are clearly not his mother (thank god!) He just gonna have to learn to live with it. And if anything he should learn how to cook for himself atleast cuz I think he gets home way be for you wake up lol. But if you still wanna cook him theres this really nice chef her Name Is Laura Vitalie and she has some real good easy peasy recipes that you could for Hoyt. I lern from her website ill give to you so you can try some of hers stuff out. Here: Hope its useful

Since you don't like the scent of "dead" food, perhaps a vegetable garden would be the way to go for you. You certainly have the weather for it, and anyone can make a salad. Just side it with something you bring back from work or set a crock pot before you retire. Tend to it when you wake up (watering anything is always better at night anyway - the soil retains the moisture better), pick a few things, chop it up, toss it in a bowl and viola! Dinner is served.

Oh, and I *hate* doing dishes myself, especially with food stuck all over it, so if you *really* wanted to hint about a housewarming gift and don't have one already, a good dishwasher is your friend. (They actually use less water, too.)

The first year living together is a tough one - you're learning, he's learning, and a wandering eye is at its most vulnerable. After 15 years together, there are two pieces of advice I can offer:

#1 Trust: you get what you give. If my husband wanted to go to a strip club with his friends for say a bachelor party, I'm not his keeper or his mother - he can most certainly go. I would ask him when he got back home if he had a good time, that he didn't spend too much money, and to please not share details. I trust he wouldn't do anything to hurt our relationship, so I could care less.

#2 Reading the menu: read all you want, but just don't order anything. I know, I know - that's a lot easier to say than to do. But it all goes back to #1.

You two are such an adorable couple, and we all know you both truly love each other very much. Temptation is all around, and it comes along when we feel our most vulnerable and unsure. Hopefully the love is strong enough there you two can overcome such strong obstacles. Love yourself first, respect yourself, and extend an unlimited line of trust. If you can do that, hold onto that, and be ready to be forthcoming when you fall, he will be there to pick you up... even if it's not right away.

Hoyt needs to learn to cook for himself - this isn't the 50's after all !
