Come and get it!

Our church family has been so wonderful over the past couple of weeks. I have had visits, calls, and emails from people, and best of all, several meals have been provided by families within our church. In addition, a couple of nights, we have eaten with my parents, and one night Daniel picked up fast food.

Overall, it has been so nice to not have to worry about what to make for dinner!

Last night was an exception though, as these "Meals to Go" are winding down. Daniel perused the fridge and concluded that we had "nothing to eat" so he was going to be in charge of cooking. Well, yay for me! I still get to sit around and be served, so please don't think I was complaining.

Daniel surfed the net and used one of my favorite sites to come up with a few ideas. He made a list, checked it twice, and headed off to the store for the ingredients we didn't have on hand. He came home and made himself very busy in the kitchen while the kids and I relaxed with a Tivo'd episode of Ellen.

"It's ready!" he said, not many minutes off the mark of 6:30 that we target for dinner most nights.

We settled down to a meal reminiscent of Chili's Triple Play. We had pigs in a blanket, chips and Rotel dip, and pinwheels. I would say the pinwheels were the most work. He had to mix some cream cheese filling and spread it on tortillas, and then let them chill before cutting them. Whew. Talk about labor intensive.

By far, it was the most interesting meal we have had lately. His efforts were noble and sincere, but I won't be signing him up to prepare meals for other new moms. Seems like it might take a special someone to appreciate a dinner like that.

Ha! I totally expected something like a roast, pork shops, or fried chicken the way the story was heading. So in actuality it was just appetizers for dinner. I guess that's better than just Cheetos.

HAHA..that's funny. He is truly an appetizer kind of guy, having witnessed his panicked look at Christmas when he thought there might not be jalepeno poppers. :)

This dinner was reminiscent of the movie Mermaids with Cher. Remember that? Your dinner would've only been BETTER had it been served on skewers.

That sounds like the perfect repast for an afternoon of watching football...heh! At least it was covered with love. (Hope the indigestion didn't last!)
