I will occasionally reference “the Man” and “the Girl”.
“the Man” is my husband/and other title that isn’t relevant here. We live together and we both do the cooking, though let’s be honest – I do the majority of it. Things he likes to cook, I generally don’t eat (chicken livers? NOPE!).
“the Girl” is someone very close to us who comes down from Philly every other weekend or so to visit. She also does some cooking, and I’ll credit her recipes from time to time.
