Visitors, visiting

My father-in-law came to visit.  He barely slept the night before, didn’t eat all day, and landed at LAX around 3:00 pm.  We brought him to our home, where SpecialK loaded a plate with crackers, peanut butter and grapes, and set it in front of his father.  After a few bites, Dad-In-Law decided to take a nap.  It was 5:00 pm.  He slept until 6:00 am the next morning.  After waking, he told me he wasn’t feeling well the night before.

Prior to his travel, Dad-In-Law told me he wanted to meet who we worked with, who we associated with and eat my cooking.

We met employer, coworkers and friends, and oh how we ate!  Chicken tenders, risotto, tsimmes, zucchini noodles, shredded butternut squash and our latest chicken casserole were all eaten.  Tasting my spiraled apple snack one day, he commented, “It’s cold”.  I will spare the details, but he likes his apples heated, and I like this apple snack cold, crisp, and juicy.

We returned him to the airport, said goodbye, and off he went, loaded down with all the leftover cookies.

Later that same day, SpecialK saw a post from a hometown friend on Facebook.  The friend mentioned a dish he was eating, and SoecialK knew which restaurant he was at. Comments mans messages were exchanged, and said friend joined us for lunch.  Leftover chicken casserole left the freezer, and was served again.

This week was SpecialK and my anniversary.  I made the following cheesecake in honor of the occasion.  Would this be a good time to mention our double ovens are wonky?  Top and bottom?

So that was my week that was.  How was your week?  Favorite Passover dishes?

Next stop, Gluten Free Expo, in Pasadena, CA.  Then, perhaps I can stop eating (high carb foods).
