Dinner is Served

We have a young man in our youth group who likes to cook.  I do not.  And so it didn't take me long to figure out a win-win opportunity. (I'm a quick one!)

We bought the groceries. He brought his chef's hat and coat, and pans and seasonings.  As I stood and watched the washing and chopping begin, there was a brief moment when I wondered what we had gotten ourselves into.  But as soon as he started flipping those potatoes, I knew this was going to be a good thing. It was quite impressive (as was his willingness to do it about 87 extra times so I could try to get a good shot).  Before long we were asked to sit down, and plates heaped with potatoes, onions, and fish were served with style and ease. And then bananas foster.  It doesn't get much better than that! But then it did get better - he cleaned up.

As my father always used to say, "We'll put you on steady!"


  1. How nice to have someone cook for you and cleanup! And bananas foster no less. That is a win-win for sure! Best wishes, Tammy

  2. Wonderful -- as you say, a win-win. I'm sure it was fun for him too.
