My dinner date last night

I had the most wonderful dinner date last night, with my 11 year old grandson. I've been on vacation, just hanging at the house (which I love to do) and I asked him last week what would be his favorite dinner to eat. You know the old saying "be careful what you ask for", well, this was his reply:

Chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy, steak tips and pork ribs.

Sooooooo, I said OK, how about a dinner date next Monday night. He jumps at the idea and said " SURE".

So last night him and I had a dinner date (with a few extra friends). We ended up eating with his mom, auntie, and his best friend. I about dropped dead when his friend asked for spinach and cauliflower and then HE asked for some too, AND ATE IT! Peer pressure, it goes both good and bad. We had frosted brownies for dessert and what a grand time we all had. This is something I must do more often. Just had to share a good day with everyone.
