Actually the reason this is important, Kathleen knows why - my husband doesn't like to eat anything that is not steak and potatos. The fact that he keeps raving about this Christmas dinner that Kathleen made is because he ate Mexican food. I just recently got him to go into a Chinese restaurant - he eats American, I eat the Chinese. He's very weird about some things.

He thought I was joking when I said that I was intending to make a Mexican dinner that year for Christmas. Marty likes meat and potatoes with no frills. We had turkey molé, pork tamales, Mexican rice, refried beans, a citrus salad, warm tortillas, fried tortilla chips, several salsas, lots of Sangria, and I cannot remember what all else. I had a huge bowl of Clementines sitting out. At dinner, I don't think he knew what to think but he was shocked that it was not turkey, ham, dressing, etc. but, to his credit, he ate it...and had seconds! I think that was the most fun Christmas dinner I ever made. Plus, Marty is awesome for remembering it - especially since I doubt we could have drug him to a Mexican restaurant.

There's a similar problem in my house...not quite as severe, but getting Shrek to try something new takes lots of persuasion and a refusal to fix something else for him.

That sounds so excellent! I love Mexican for Christmas! I need to finish assembling my tamales.

It's pretty cool when the in-laws like your cooking!

Mexican for Christmas was nice.. though, if I remember correctly, it was not on a Sunday, and we weren't tailgating.

It's still Sunday now and we are chatting at the tailgating party.

Is this the place for an argument?

Tamales would be most excellent for tailgating...as would cake.

Since it is the playoffs and well... we ain't in it I didn't do anything last week. This week is da Bears (Kathleen is a Bears fan) so I did some italian beef. Found a recipe online for the crockpot and put it in last night.

This stuff is gooooooood... oh goodness.. why haven't I made this before?

What are you eating for football?
