I spent a quiet afternoon reading, while my son, Creighton, prepared Mexican dinner.
After receiving inspiration from Jo Tracey’s recent post about ‘Decision Bowl Dinners,’ Richard, Creighton and I decided to borrow that idea — with a twist. 1) We drew the name of which one of us would cook Friday night dinner. 2) We put 7 different country cuisines into the draw — Thai, Japanese, Italian, Greek, Chinese, Indian and Mexican. Russian and Australian were both vetoed by Creighton and Richard as “too hard”.
Soon we were called to the table for a Taco Feast with all of the fixings. Absolutely delicious!
Going with what we had on hand, Creighton served American and Chinese beer with dinner. It added an international flavour.
And who can argue with ice cream and peaches for dessert?
Afterwards, we drew for next week’s dinner. And the winner was:
I could definitely get used to this!
