I love having dinner guests. I love planning what we are going to have for dinner and what we will do. Sometimes we play games, sometimes we talk, always we have fun. Tonight we are having my brother and his wife and some friends and their kids for dinner. I'm making pot roast with carrots, onions and potatoes, and chocolate chip cookies for dessert. Simple, relaxing, cozy food. Just chop up the veggies, sear the meat and let it all hang out for a few hours in a hot oven. I think it is the kind of meal everyone will enjoy, kids and adults, alike.
While I wait for our guests to arrive I'm sitting here making a little list of things I'd like to be able to do tomorrow. Aaron works for the state so he gets the day off, which is a nice little treat. I'd love to be able to thrift in the morning, come home make lunch for my family (or better yet eat a lunch made by my husband!), maybe clean out the garage (ha!), bake a little, craft in the afternoon and go to bed early. It might be a perfect day!
