AI want you to know how much I appreciate these terrific meals you've been cooking. Do you guys always eat this well?
BNot really. During the week, we're both busy with our jobs, so there isn't much time to cook anything fancy.
AWe both enjoy cooking and experimenting, so we usually try to fix something special on Sundays.
BThis morning's breakfast was great, scrambled eggs, bacon, toast, and orange juice! You surely don't eat that kind of breakfast every day.
AYou're right! We don't. During the week, we usually have cold cereal and maybe a piece of fruit. Neither of us has the time to cook breakfast. Monday through Friday, it's Every man for himself. Don’t worry, though. You’ll never go to bed hungry.
BThat's true. And dinners are different, anyway. Some nights Marsha will fix a casserole or a pasta dish. Other nights, I like to throw fish or hamburgers onto the grill. And fix a green salad.
ASo, you cook every night?
BWell, not every night. Some nights we have leftovers, or maybe we'll just send out for a pizza. We even enjoy going out to a restaurant once in a while.
AThere's so much food on the table, I don't know where to begin.
BPass your plate down to Chuck, Tina. He'll put meat on it. He always carves the turkey.
AWhite meat or dark, Tina?
BDark, please. I like the drumsticks.
AWhy don't you start passing the potatoes, honey?
BYou know, Tina, it's okay to pick up the leg with your fingers. You don't have to cut it from the bone. Around here, we think eating should be easy and fun.
AAnd try a little bit of everything. Then you can go back for seconds, after you see which dishes you like best.
BI feel so full. I don't think I could eat another bite. Thank you, Chuck and Rachel, for inviting me to share this delicious meal with you and all your friends.
