Girls Write Out
Thursday, September 06, 2007

"What are you going to make for Food and Friends?" I ask Kevin as we walk through the mall.

"I don't know."

He's been stressing over this since our last Food and Friends, a get-together we have with two other families. We take turns hosting, have a fabulous evening, the men do the cooking, and boy can they cook! What's not to like about that?

"It's not about the food, you know," I assure him. "It's about the friends."

"Oh yeah? How come it's 'Food and Friends'? Notice how the 'Food' comes first."

"Denny named it. It's his fault."

"See, it's about the food. Especially the meat. I can't grill out hamburgers again."

"Let's just change the name. When we host, we'll call it Friends and Food. There, does that take the pressure off?"

"No. I still don't know what to cook."

I volunteered to do the cooking, but that whole male conquer thing has already kicked in. He still doesn't know what he's making but whatever it is, I can guarantee the Food will pale in comparison to the Friends no matter how good it is. And that's the way it's supposed to be.

Thanks, Deena! You all have become a pleasant part of our days too.

You're right about guys and the brats. I don't see the attraction though. LOL

I love the idea of Food and Friends, not to mention guys cooking. Anything that gets me out of the kitchen. ;-) I should mention this to my hubby and see what he thinks of the idea.

The tools in the garage, the sports teams he roots for, and the meat he pulls off a grill.

This is what men judge other men upon. And a few other things but those are top secret.

Ahhh, food and friends.
To all whome are interested it was a great evening, and the food was superb. The best part was when we got home and read this blog. I must admit reading about chef Kevin worrying about the quality of his food gave me joy in a twisted way. Regardless I highly recommend a F.A.F. night for everyone
