Silence is (ful)filling
Friday, October 02, 2015
My in-laws like to eat American food when they visit, since they never have it at home. Last night we made a quintessentially American meal of burgers and tater tots for dinner, and the in-laws loved it. The hub doctored and seasoned the ground beef before forming and cooking monster patties, and I filled a platter with sliced fresh veggies, cheese, bacon, and eggs to help fill the huge chewy Kaiser rolls. Dinner was a wordless (other than the occasional "heerlijk" - so mission accomplished!) but noisy affair, with lots of eating sounds. So, pretty much a perfect dinner.
My stomach was still feeling queasy so I had soup and some veggies for dinner instead of a monster burger, with a shot of Nyquil for dessert. Today I am sitting in my office surviving on Hall's cough drops. I am *so* glad it's Friday!
We're planning on taking the in-laws to an Indian fast casual restaurant for dinner tonight. It's like Chipotle but Indian food, and our kids love it. So not exactly traditional American, but something else that they would never have at home. I'm having so much fun feeding my in-laws. They are leaving already on Wednesday, so I am counting down the meals to see what else I can fit in!
