The Dinner Assignment for Recipe Friday

I don’t have a new recipe to share today. Instead I want to share what a blessing my dear son is and what a great cook he is.

He is taking Food and Nutrition in school this semester, and the semester is almost over. Until this week all the cooking for this class was done in class. I would hear every day that he had this class, “Guess what we made in Food and Nutrition today?” when I got home from work. But he never brought any of what they made home for us. (It wasn’t really his fault. It was his first class of four on the days he has it and it would be hard to keep the food fresh and be able to bring it home.)

But thankfully for us the final project for this class was to make us a complete dinner, including dessert. We talked about what he wanted to make, tossing around a few ideas. He finally asked, “What do you want me to make?” I picked some of my favorite recipes that I’ve posted here on my blog in the past, some of our family favorites.

So here was our menu, all made by my son:

  • Meatloaf (it wasn’t shaped quite like mine, but tasted moist and yummy)
  • Garlic Mashed Potatoes (a little light on the garlic, but still good)
  • Corn (okay, not a recipe, just a can of corn heated up)
  • Chop Salad (with cucumbers, snap peas, and red pepper)
  • Lemon Coconut Cake(awesome, as always; baking is really his specialty)

    The Dinner Spread

Part of the assignment was also to set the table, serve the dinner, and clean up afterwards. I would definitely give him an A+! We look pretty happy to be eating this delicious spread, don’t we?

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  3. Linda… I always like it when you share your family-enjoying-a-meal pics! I can tell from the photo that this is about more than just the food. Happy for you to be blessed by precious family time and a delicious meal.

    • Linda, Most dinners are eaten off TV trays in front of the TV, so when we have a special occasion that requires unburying my dining room table we make the most of it! 🙂 Peace, Linda

  4. Oh Linda, this sounds so good–makes me hungry at 10:20 am!! How lovely that your son loves to cook and made you a wonderful dinner! God bless you today.
