So Bryan and I cook meals four times a week for each other. I cook Mondays and Tuesdays and he cooks Wednesdays and Thursdays. I have really learned to love this. It is a huge time commitment though, depending on what I am making. I can spend from 1-2 hours working on a meals. (A HUGE thank you to all moms who don't have the effort they put forth acknowledged or appreciated).
Bryan keeps telling me I have the "feed the missionaries syndrome" where I always make too much. I just worry that people won't have enough. I never want anyone to feel like they can't eat as much. SO, I make, according to Bryan, "enough to feed a family". Because of my "syndrome" and the excess food which I produce, we have been having people over for dinner recently. Whether my roommates join us, his roommates join us or his/my/our friends, it has been a lot of fun.
Most recently we had my friends Erik and Adam over for a meal. Erik had wanted a Mexican dish, so I made Cafe Rio. It turned out to be pretty good. I was really glad. I have realized recently that I have been making meals where I have never made the dish before. Kind of risky and dangerous.
Anyways, here are some pictures from our meal on Monday. Adam had mentioned how we were all kind of color coordinated and then Erik suggested we take a picture.
This was our attempt to take a picture with the timer set. It WOULD have worked if Erik had not been a little punk.
