"I don’t care HOW much you try to ruin dinner… when it comes to "worst dinner award" your "Scorched Roast Beef" can't hold a candle to my "Tequila Lime Turkey".
Nice try though. Better luck next year. I think its Lester’s time to get in the running for that award… or maybe Rob and Aleta !!!! When they cook I will have the ambulance and fire trucks on speed dial. THANKS for dinner though. I appreciate it."
Mom laughed, of course. Hmm, between the supper she made the other time of red beans that Greg didn’t like, there’s a ditty in there somewhere….
Don’t ask Mom to cook
She’ll make you Burnt Roast and Bland Beans
Don’t ask Me to cook
‘Cause Honey, it runs in the Genes
Greg and I joined Rob and Roda for supper tonight at Spudley’s. It’s a good restaurant if you like huge baked potatoes that are stuffed with all sorts of food.
Rob and Roda decided towards the end of the meal, to let us in on the previous meal. Rob said, "You ate the chicken that Roda cooked last night? Did Mom tell you about it?" (They cooked chicken and brought it over to my parents’ house and had left overs for us when we stopped by later on.)
Come to find out, Rob had a lot of chicken in his freezer that dated back to 2006! And he served it to us! I was horrified!
Roda said, "Your brother has had that chicken longer than he has known me!" We laughed so hard the other patrons of the restaurant were turning to look at us.
Greg replied, "I can picture us going over to Rob and Roda’s for supper. In one hand they have a bottle of wine from 2005 and in the other hand, a serving of chicken from 2001. No Thank you, when the chicken is older than the wine, I PASS!"
Greg continued, "Roda is a nurse. She probably looked at the chicken, *did the hand motion of paddles in the air*
And the Winner of "Worst Dinner Award" based on …
Goes to Rob and Roda. (I happily pass that torch on to them. hehe)
(Roda, if you read this – PLEASE EMPTY OUT ROB’S FREEZER!)
