Dinner Guests and expectations

I am sincerely looking forward to this evening.
One of my dear friends from high school is coming over for dinner,
along with her husband. The last time I saw her was when she treated me for my birthday.
We've stayed in touch through the years and yet I'm ashamed to say I haven't had them for dinner in all these years. I guess I could make up some excuse,
but I don't really have one. Well, except that there may be some (unspoken)
expectations on me:
A.) her husband is a huge eater, (will I have enough to fill him up)?

But, the real reason may be,
her Mother is an amazing cook.
And I don't use those words lightly.
She's authored BOOKS about cooking.

New York Times Best Seller Books!!!
Like this one:
("Phyllis Pellman Good is a New York Times bestselling author whose books have sold more than 8.5 million copies. Good has authored the national #1 bestselling cookbook Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook: Feasting with Your Slow Cooker (with Dawn J. Ranck), which appeared on The New York Times bestseller list").
I can vividly remember spending time at their home and standing in amazement at the leftovers in their refrigerator. And looking back I have to laugh because it's the first time I ever saw or tasted quiche....and in my ignorance I called it "Q-ech", (um, dork)!! That's almost as bad as calling quesadillas "quas-ah-dillas".
Actually, I know for a fact that they could care less about what is served tonight, it's the company and conversation that are most important.

Well, I better get going if I want to serve them something other then mac n' cheese
and dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets!!

Hope you enjoy this lovely weekend.

It should be entered into with abandon or
not at all."

That's not so bad a pronunciation of quiche, as when my husband was hanging out with guy friends (when he was a lot younger, let me mention), and they were eating at Dennys and he told the waitress he'd take a quickie! The other guys totally lost it. He seriously thought that's how you pronounce it! I'm Brenda that used to babysit for following your are inspiring!
