Sunday dinner is usually around lunch time. And, we usually have too much. So we sometimes invite the neighbors over for lunch, conversation and great food.
Sounds simple, huh?
Yeah..that's what I thought, too.
Mr. B said, "let's burn some burgers. We can have hot dogs for the kids..simple, ya know..."
Yeah, that's what I thought, too.
Burgers turned into pasta. No problem, right?
Pasta turned into just one of the courses...yeah..simple..right..
Tomato and mozzarella and basil salad.
Fresh sautéed veggies..
Pounded chicken breasts with garlic..
I mean, all those great TV chefs can whip it up in no time..with no mess...right??
Ahhh, yes. Those TV chefs have...assistants.
Yeah, lots of assistants. Some to chop veggies. Some to set the tables. Some to do clean-up.
"Clean as you go" remember that from Home EC??? (Home Ecconomics..for those too young to remember...)
And, as they say, one picture us with a thousand words...
But when all is said and done, a partnership is just that. One does what the other doesn't particularly like to do. And, in the end, we have happy neighbors, full and satisfied hosts, fun and some awesome leftovers. Oh, and a sink I can actually...see!
So thank you, Mr. B. And, next time, can I be the chef???
