My parents are coming and it’s always a struggle for me to fix meals for them that are really good — things mom doesn’t fix at home, but yet things they will like. My dad is a kind of meat and potatoes type guy and neither of them will eat anything too spicy or “weird”. I’ve spent the whole morning, while waiting for the Dish Network man to get here, working on the menu for while my parents are here. Here’s what I’ve come up with.
My plan was to get to the store this morning and buy the things needed to get us through Monday. The only fridge here is the smaller basement fridge and it doesn’t hold a heck of a lot so I’ve had to plan meals that we’ll mostly eat and not have leftovers.
The main reason I had wanted to go to the store is I wanted to make this for dinner tonight. But it has to cook for at least 4 hours and since it’s after 1 p.m. already and the Dish guy is still here and he was supposed to be here between 8 and 12 so I waited all morning and he got here at 12:15 and probably won’t be done til at least 2, I’m not going to have time to go to the store and get this done for dinner tonight. Tomorrow . . there’s always tomorrow night, right?
