The Salad FiascoSaturday, my husband and I actually went on what I would consider a date (a rare occasion). A lttle background so you understand where I am going with this story. He is a huge meat and potatoes man. So we sit down at the restaurant and discuss what we are going to order. Note: I am starving!! I had not eaten since breakfast and it is now 6:30 pm. (it was a busy day.) I decided I am giong to order the small counrty fried steak. He suggests I order the large version because it is only a dollar more and then I will have leftovers to take home. Seems like a great idea. The waitress comes to take our order. I order the LARGE country fried steak and he orders a SMALL salad. I am shocked. This man does not believe in salad as a meal, not to mention he just made me look like a PIG!! When I brought this to his attention he thought it was incredibly funny. He laughed so hard I thought he was going to fall out of his chair. It turns out that the laugh would come back to bite him. When the food came out I could tell he was very disappointed. He tossed the salad about, picked at it and dipped his fork into MY potatoes every once in awhile. So finally, I just traded him plates. He was much happier then and I really did enjoy the salad. I agree it makes for a great story for him to tell and I loved hearing him laugh. I had to share this with you knowing you would understand and maybe get a kick out of it also.
Friday my daughter brought home a big bag of gingerbread dough. We were to make the pieces for a gingerbread house. So yesterday was spent trying to get this accomplished. I have never tried to make a gingerbread house from scratch. It is a lot of work, my kitchen was trashed and I did not even have to make the dough. After a couple hours I finally got some finished product to send with her to school.
