Dinner Conversation


Abigail took a bite of homemade gyro (on homemade pita bread) and said, "THIS is what they eat in heaven."

Collin replied, "They don't eat in heaven yet; they're waiting for mom to get there!"

Tracy,
How truly priceless their comment was. There is no doubt you are one special mom and wife to your family. Happy New Year.

How cute is that? It's so nice to cook for an appreciative audience isn't it? :)

LOL--this reminds me of something I read not long ago...

That heaven as an eternal banquet, must have been thought up by a man. Because you can imagine a woman discussing all of the various "needs"...yes, a bunch of Marthas...

"So, Lord, whose going to be doing the cooking? I see...and the cleaning?...okay...now, what about..."

Men just come in, sit down, and eat. Women, we ponder menus, and food prep, and cleaning/decorating for our guests.

(Having just had to cancel a New Years Eve party, I know that all too well!).

On another note, we LOOOVE gyros here. My DH makes a mean tzatziki...one of these days, we want to raise some lamb, just so we can braise our own, and eat them like we did in the Greek restaraunts in Germany (where we both got addicted to real Greek food--not gyro stand gyros...reallllllly Greek food)...

Oh my. Now you've got me hankering after some Greek food, and it is after 930 at night...lol

Maybe I can plan that for dinner one night this next week...lol

And, btw, congratulations, on inspiring your children. It is obvious that they know a good thing when they taste it...and they obviously love you very much.

Have a happy new year!
