Comments for Derrick for Dinner

BreadDerrick For Dinner: 01/28/07

It's official. Derrick is now a bay area resident. He starts his new job tomorrow and we celebrated with our old tradition of "hunk of meat." We had prime rib (much nicer than what we used get), mashed potatoes, mushroom fondue and homemade chocolate pudding (the one thing I made).

While Ian took care of the cooking, I took care of the cleaning. We had straightened up a lot of the living room yesterday there was still room for improvement. I had made things a little worse by cleaning out under the couch last night to find a missing DVD case. Today I had to put away all that "hidden treasure."

I also took care of putting away a lot of Sean's toys and some of our toys (like the telescope) and of course cleaning off the dining room table. Like my grandmother, I have a dining room table that just collects crap all by itself.

Sean was a big help. He ran things downstairs for me. He also threw trash away and took other things to the kitchen. Sometimes he helped by keeping Harriet entertained. He's very good at making her laugh.
