No, I deserve a medal for having kids who volunteered to make the full Easter dinner, top to bottom ... and since one of them is engaged to a chef and was more than happy to pull some strings, we had ham baked in a Grand Marnier, brown sugar, cinnamon and pineapple juice sauce, six different veggies, turkey with dressing, and the most amazing lemon meringue pie. And I didn't have to lift a finger. Not as good as a day out on the boat (did you catch any fish?)but pretty nice.


I'm with Nils on this one. Having offspring who are taking up the slack is wonderful.
Christmas dinner was prepped by the two younger sons, and clean-up was by the three guys.
I haven't cooked a big dinner since, oh gheeszh, I think it was Thanksgiving.

Easter day was so laid back I can't remember anything other than looking at pictures of violets which were taken by DoF.

But you are right about leftovers being even better to come home to. Especially after a tiring day on the water.


Not just holiday meals but I think I should get a medal for just getting going and cooking and a big medal for not burning something and having to start over. At least I am no longer timing the food with the smoke alarm.


Ahhh, a boat ride. I used to love them as a kid. Now I just obsess about how much ocean there is and how far away from land we are and at what point I'm going to fall overboard and be eaten by a shark. :P


That cake sounds so yummy.

Florida Cracker

My kids do the same thing...covered up and sleeping after a day on the water. Such a good feeling.

Nice boat...
