In the post over the weekend we mentioned we had 7 people coming for dinner Monday night. Well, one was sick, one had to help someone with car problems (she did drop off a bottle of wine), one had to help her daughter with homework as husband was not available (she stayed for a few minutes), two never showed. So, two came. So, we encouraged one to go home and get her two children who were at home nearby- a 20 year old and a 2 1/2 year old. Not as bad as the time we gave a party and no one came- some of you know that story and for those who don’t, suffice it to say we are a little gun shy about having parties with people we don’t know very well.
It was the first time any of them had eaten lasagna. Cheese just isn’t very popular here. The cows and goats are all used for meat not dairy and cheese (what there is) is very expensive! (It is a major splurge for us but we decided we deserve it) The little boy LOVED it. Mom was so surprised. Unfortunately we forgot to take a picture of the beautiful lasagna and bean salad. Guess we could have taken one tonight since we have lots of leftovers! But, here is the dip and crudites and caramel apple pie. Missing is the ice cream and caramel sauce that came on top.
Do we seem obsessed with food? We have noticed that PCVs post a lot of pictures of food so guess we are normal.
Well, off to eat some of the leftover pie with ice cream and caramel sauce- life could be a lot worse!
