It’s not fair. For weeks I thumbed through pages and pages of cookbooks, magazines,old recipe notebooks and searched on line to try and put together a suitable menu for the Mother’s Day Luncheon. What should have been a simple task turned out to be a stressful chore.
Having to take into account the different tastes,likes and dislikes of a variety of women I had to be sure my menu was diet friendly but not too friendly. These women like to eat but salads and vegetables and carefully cooked foods devoid of flavor were out.
In the end everything worked out and the menu was interesting and even included a few vegetable dishes.
The unfair part, and I’m not blaming the gender,was Father’s Day. Not a cookbook nor magazine was consulted. And yet without much thought I knew what I would be cooking weeks before Father’s Day. I actually had too much to choose from: Steak? Fillet of beef? Fat juicy burgers? And as long as there was ice cold beer, what side dishes I served wasn’t even important.
I’m not complaining. The Mother’s Day Luncheon was a great chance to get together with friends,old and new. Father’s Day was a day to cook meat and let men eat.
Because I raved so much about the black-eye pea salad from the lucheon I decided to make it for Father’s Day. I wasn’t multi-tasking as much so I was able to get pictures to use for a post.
My name is Dwayne Peterkin. I was re-baptized April 2011 and since then I have been doing my best to obey the Lord Jesus Christ and do his will. In this sinful world IT IS NOT EASY to stand up for God. You'll be tested, friendships may fall by the wayside, old habits will fade away. I hope that as I share my Faith Walk, others are encouraged on theirs. I hope you join me on this journey.
