PlusOne made dinner for everyone last night. He set the table, color coordinating all the plates and bowls (memere has fiesta ware). He set out the cheese and crackers that pepere COULDN'T touch until mom (the birthday girl) arrived.
Memere said he was very decisive about what could and could not go into any dish. He made the salad, with fresh mushrooms because mom likes them, and he didn't let memere put onions in the American Chop Suey because they don't agree with dad.
There wasn't much left of the American Chop Suey.
He made an apple pie, he really wanted strawberries and chocolate dipping sauce, but memere had to remind him that he was on a budget. There wasn't much left. PlusOne magnanimously decided to give memere the leftover pie because.....
he had made another with a crumble top. Which came home with mom and dad. Mr. Karate was psyched about that. Memere thinks it would be funny if PlusOne were to turn into a chef. Mom says she can see them introducing him on Top Chef as the Karate Kicking Chef. Using his hands instead of knives. lol
