Default Dinner last night and tonight...

Last night we were invited by friends to a dinner at one of their cousins
and their family, by virtue of having met them for the first time at a
birthday party a couple of weeks ago. The cousin, Bill, is an excellent
home cook, and there was a crowd of people (large family). David and I
were the only non-family members there. It was truly a comfort meal, as
Bill had made a 14 quart stockpot full of chicken and homemade egg noodles,
studded with pieces of carrot, celery, and onion. I think they were best
I've ever eaten. He had also baked six dozen white and whole wheat dinner
rolls which were both toothsome and light, and still warm out of the oven.
We had sides of fresh cut buttered corn, mashed potatoes, and a great mix
of greens and vegetable salad. I think I counted six different kinds of
pie, and others had brought appetizers. I took my lime cake by Bill's
request, along with my mother's recipe for cheeseball and an assortment of
crackers.

Bill sent us home with a half dozen rolls and a large pan of chicken and
noodles. We carefully reheated the chicken and noodles and rolls tonight
and thoroughly enjoyed it again!

Wayne, I can't tell you how jealous I am. This would be pretty much my ideal
comfort food dinner. Mom and I made chicken & noodles last Wednesday when I
was up there too ;-) Here it's only August and already I'm out of my Aunt
Maggie's corn...but I did get some at the market today that I'll make
tomorrow. Maybe I'll have the leftover chicken & noodles too :-)

Kimberly, I wish you could have been there! Everything about the evening
was delightful. I haven't able to find decent corn to buy all summer.
Bill grows his own, so it was perfect.

In fact, this was a perfect ending to a perfectly horrible week (the a/c
out, issues with the cats, the heat, etc.), so you can imagine how welcome
it was to share in such an evening.

Yes, I can imagine indeed. I take great comfort in an evening of good food
and better company. It's the perfect way to make a terrible time infinitely
better in almost any situation, isn't it? When my husband and I were trying
to have another baby (we lost a total of 6 pregnancies and 7 babies before
we finally had my daughter), and things were pretty much at their worst as
far as that goes, I remember my husband driving me over to my parents, and
my brothers and my sister were there, and we just had this sort of impromptu
holiday meal, and soon everyone was talking and telling stories and it just
made me feel so good for that evening...and for days after. That's why no
matter how corny Emeril's sayings ever get...I'll always agree with "food of
love".

Good thinking!

It must be one helluva kitchen he's got, to serve up all that food! Sounded
like industrial cooking to me.

I couldn't serve that spread from my kitchen. No way Josť!!!

Good comforting food, a loving and supportive family, and close friends can
make all the difference in how we're able to cope with life in general, but
especially in the face of tragedy and loss. I'm so sorry to learn of your
many losses in trying to have children. It must be terribly difficult to
go through. I know that my mother had several miscarriages and lost
several babies before I was born. When I was nine years old, my mother
lost identical twin boys near the end of her eighth month, and she nearly
died as well. We didn't live near family at that time, but her closest
sister came to stay with us for a couple of months. Her presence helped
tremendously. I'm sure your daughter is just that much more precious to
you after going through so much.

Surprisingly, Bill has a modest galley kitchen and not a tremendous amount
of counter space. Obviously he makes very efficient use of the area. He
does have plenty of additional storage space, however, so every inch of the
kitchen itself is usable. I know I would have a hard time producing such a
meal in that kitchen. I can just barely do large quantities in mine, and I
have at least twice as much space.
