Dinner success


Ah, another successful communal dinner tonight.

It had been a while since I'd been to a communal dinner. There hadn't been very many recently, and the few there were, I wasn't able to go to because I was either out of town or had other plans already. Having not seen the big group for a while, I missed the dinner crowd, and sent out an invite. On the menu: salmon fajitas!

Usually, when we make salmon fajitas, I also make homemade tortilla's from Ariel's mother's recipe, but tonight I just couldn't bring myself to the extra effort of making forty tortillas, in addition to all the other fixings. I just couldn't.

So, I didn't.

Ah, did it feel good.

The plan was to start cooking at 6, eat at 7. Usually when we I say that, I'm off by 30 - 45 minutes on the start time. So, to balance this, I bought chips and salsa to sooth the hungry guests. With Katie's help, however, we actually had everything cooked, out on the table, and ready to eat by 6:56 PM.

Take that, non-believers!

Oh, and let me tell you, not eating chocolate, so that brownies for dessert are okay? So way worth it.
