Sunday dinner

We grilled today; two platters of boneless chicken.
We made a large bowl of whole-wheat ziti tossed with sauteed garlic, green pepper, and a diced tomato. Oh, let's not forget the generous bowlful of freshly grated parmesan for sprinkling.
Friends #44a and #44b joined us at the table. I gave them a quick lesson in "getting a word in edgewise" around here. (Clue: dive in confidently and override any interruptions with added volume and emphasis. It's a necessary survival technique.)
For dessert, we divvied up the remains of last night's birthday cake and ice cream. After the bowls were distributed, #1 Son came to the table with an giant chunk of cake covered with ice cream. His mother (myself) reprimanded him for super-sizing himself while others were nursing thin yet equitable slices.
"That's the last piece! You should've asked if anyone wanted more before you took it."
"But I did, mom. While on the other side of the kitchen, I said:
"would anyone else like some more cake?"

I grilled chicken too for dinner. I had 4 single ladies over after church. We had a grand time. We had a healthier dessert though - grapes with yogurt.

I have a feeling we wouldn't have been so particular about the serving sizes with grapes & yogurt!
