About two months ago, when my dad and M were visiting to help us with the Fudgelet, they made us lots of meals. They had certain dishes they felt comfortable making, and then they decided to branch out and try some new things. I actually am proud of them for expanding their horizons when they visit us. We’ve gotten them to try a few new places they wouldn’t have even considered previously (and they really liked them!), and also some new food. Because we couldn’t easily go out with the baby, most of the experimenting this time was with recipes.
We recently had a visit from K’s family. His parents and brother came to visit. Since they’d never visited us while we’ve been married I was very nervous! I wasn’t sure what to expect from the visit, especially because they had been here before and already done most of the sight-seeing. It’s always a little weird having house guests, especially with ones you are close. You want to keep them happy, but they also want to be easy guests. This means that you might ask what food they want while here, but they say “whatever you want”. Eek! I need strict guidelines. Tell me you want squid, and I will give you squid. If you want chocolate, well, you know I have a lot of that. 😉
