It's Take Out Saturday!

Well, here it is Saturday and you know what Saturday is? It's take out night at our house...but then so is Friday! Woo hoo! If I could make every night take out night, I would! I love to eat, but I hate to cook. The dinner out/take out thing started when I use to work late Monday through Thursday. My husband would always cook dinner. I would get home and dinner would always be ready. How sweet is that? On Fridays, however, he somehow thought it was fair that I cook dinner. So, I told him I would gladly handle Fridays, and he was happy. I just never told him that would mean going out to dinner or getting take out every Friday. Like I said...I hate to cook.

This summer our son and daughter-in-law moved back here from Virginia. I will tell you their story another time. They are living with my daughter-in-law's parents until they find a house to purchase. Almost every Saturday night though they come over to our house for dinner. They bring their dog, Teagan, and we rent a movie. They stay over night. We have a great time.

Ah, dinner...what to do for dinner? My husband always offers to cook something, but he always gets outvoted, because the rest of us prefer take out! It isn't that he is a bad cook, but hey, I like trying different foods and take out is just so easy. No fuss, no mess. Just pick up the phone, tell them what you want and go pick it up! My son and I seem to be the real food freaks in the group. If I talk to him on Friday, he's already asking where we are getting food from...and believe me, I have already thought about it!

The next issue is always the movie. Now my son and his wife go to the show quite a bit and rent movies every weekend and have for years. Let me tell you, they know their movies! On the other hand, we never go to the show and we rarely rent movies, so we don't know squat about movies and always let them pick. Trying to pick out movies every weekend that everyone will like is quite a task. My son and his wife like all kinds of movies. My husband likes shoot 'em up cop movies and every movie I watch needs to be highly entertaining and have a very happy ending. Do they make a cop movie where they don't shoot anyone and they all live happily ever after? I think not. So, today my husband went and picked a movie for us. We will see what kind of reviews it gets from the rest of the group!
I really need to go now. I have to get things ready for dinner. It takes a lot of time and effort to grab those plates out of the cabinet and the silverware out of the drawer. Join me tomorrow when I will talk about "Change" as in my favorite bakery in the entire world is closing tomorrow. Not sure how I will get by!

How nice. I hope when my children leave home we can resurrect some sort of weekly or at best monthly tradition. Probably not including movies though-I'm a big Indie film/Foreign film buff and no one else seems to want to read subtitles in here except me! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
