Tragedy – I am addicted to the lazy susan.
Comedy – Some nights I’m too lazy to turn it.
Ever since I bought the lazy susan, I cannot stop making smorgasbord dinners. Sure, we have a few more tiny dishes to wash, but that job ends up in the husband department, perpetuating the lazy in susan. Susan delivers – dinner is more engaging for kids, they eat more because they’ve assembled it, but the real benefit for a meal like this, is that it’s prepped way before I need it. Â With just a few exhausting trips between the refrigerator and table, I yell, “dinner is ready.” Â It’s ready-to-serve and it’s fresh, which is especially helpful on these days when I’m not quite sure what time everyone will be ready to eat.
You know how it is, kids get older (16 and 10), they start making their own plans and mom’s are less in charge – so painful for one who likes to know her plans. Don’t get me started on the mystery that is still this summer.
A dinner that I can organize and make on my terms, but I can put on the table on their schedule, just works for everyone. Â And, we cannot say enough about the healthy qualities of Mediterranean food. Â It is good for the heart and that’s good for the soul. Â Try it with our lemon chicken, so easy and tasty for a few meals.
So, get lazy tonight and put some greek foods on stage. Â Break a leg…of chicken or lamb.
