My mother is visiting my sister and my hubby and I are going to have dinner with mum and my sister's family. I was emailing my sister and asking her what we would have for dinner and what did she want me to bring. She said shall we have a stew. No thank you. Hubby cooked me stew tonight. I asked Hubby what he wanted for dinner with my family. He said, "I want a Nanny Mary roast!" My sister thought that this would be a great meal to have.
For some reason my Hubby has always loved my mother's meals. He has no idea why he loves her cooking. He never says he loves my cooking (I’m laughing to myself). After awhile he said he loves the old people cooking. You can't beat them. I asked him what he means but he really can’t explain.
I can remember early on when we were first dating he would often ring my family home and ask me what’s for dinner. I’d tell him and the next minute he would be pulling up my driveway. One day when I was at his mother’s home she aplogised for him calling me and asking me what’s for dinner. She was quite upset. I just laughed.
On the menu at my sister’s house will be:
· Roast chicken
· Roasted potatoes
· Roasted kumara (sweet potatoes)
· Roasted pumpkin
· Broccoli and carrots with cheese sauce
Hubby and I are bringing the dessert and we will probably bring pavlova with strawberries and cream.
It will be great to see my mum and my sister’s family. I love eating meals with my family because it’s a time to enjoy each other’s company while sharing a scrumptious Nanny Mary Roast.
