It all began with this mini-golf game. Looks harmless enough, right?
Then someone suggested we make the game ‘interesting.’ The winner would get his/her choice of homemade dinner. The loser would make the full dinner from scratch.
From the beginning, I had a good guess who that loser would be. I prepared early, singing my theme song:
To everyone’s surprise, especially my own, I was in strong second place…right until the last two holes. Still, I kept singing my song. My son chastised me for my negative thinking.
Turns out, Creighton was right. The negative thinking did not help. With shockingly unlucky play in the last two holes, I lost by two (measly) strokes.
Richard was quick to announce that he would like stirfry (easy enough)…with homemade teriyaki sauce (hey, what’s wrong with the bottled stuff?) and thinly sliced steak (totally out of my repertoire).
After a quick trip to the grocery store and some online help from Sara from Dinner at the Zoo, the preparations were quick and easy.
Easy, delicious, something that we don’t usually have and it included lots of laughs. What could be finer on a Thursday afternoon?!
So what’s been on your plate recently? Deb (cohost) and I would love for you to share.
