Because we wanted to include the kid for dinner this weekend, the only night we could do it was Friday night. And you know, that actually worked our really well. I took the afternoon off from work and had a nice leisurely time putting together all the food and now for the rest of the weekend, we've been eating from the leftovers. No pressure - well unless you see the menu I was supposed to make.
Here's what the kid wrote for me:
That was written by an (almost) 11 year old - do you think at 11 you could have written a dinner menu? I don't think I could have. Because of time constraints I couldn't make every thing and some things are actually for breakfast (like meat chips - a Jp invention) but it's still a pretty good selection. (FYI - "Opa" is for toasts - a little game we play during holiday dinners, yelling the word to clink glasses when he least expects it - he loves it and can't wait to yell the word for us). Oh, and the 'chi chi' is virgin of course - just pineapple, coconut and crushed ice.
Hope all my Canadian friends are having a great Thanksgiving weekend and enjoying the loverly weather -especially since it's supposed to rain from the 13th to the 22nd! Oy!
