I Love Thursdays!


Know why? Because every Thursday my girlfriends and I get together to hang out. To veg. To eat. Not just eat, but to engage in the almost ritualistic enjoyment of food. Our kids play, we talk, we cook, we consume. Most important of all, we relax. Here we are at my dining room table, feasting on Italian pastries and strangely enough, tortilla chips and pico de gallo. Eating pico is an art. First, you use a chip to scrape off some cream cheese, then you shovel fresh pico on the chip. Then you cram the entire chip indelicately in your mouth. Then you chew, and your eyes roll back in your head. It's lovely. When you've had enough of spicy, you take on the creamy desserts. Then you switch back. You repeat this, or something like it every Thursday until your jeans don't fit anymore. Then you get to go shopping! Is it Thursday yet?

I am SO envious! How I would love to steal my friends away from their various jobs, etc, and hang out even one Thursday. Enjoy that girl time!

If that's what you're making, Kimi, I'll bring the Italian pastries!

Jodi said...

Oh yum! Sounds like my kind of Thursday...or any day for that matter! Have you ever tried Cheetos in vanilla frosting? Mmmm... Probably not as good as Italian Pastries and pico, but not bad!

What are you saying? You don't like Tofu Goulash?

Can I join you guys?

I am getting the little one used to the bottle so I can get out of the house. :)

Tell me what food to bring, I love food and eating food with friends.

If we rotate locations it can be at my house too, just let me know.
