Yes, I was the loser.....Tuesday's with Paul is always a fun night around our house, two Tuesdays ago I had another friend over who's wife was out of town, we were talking Italian food and I happened to mention I make a pretty good lasagna, well our friend Peter proceed to tell me that mine couldn't possibly be better than his wife Joan's, Paul pipes in and says lets have a cook-off at Peters place, well let me say Peter is competitive, I said BRING IT! feeling pretty confident since I was a caterer, as the big day approached I spent several hours on Monday making my homemade sauce, since it is better when it sits over night, the next morning assembling the massive lasagna it weighed a ton! noooooo I wasn't worried not all, this is a work of art no way Paul wouldn't love mine more, I was (A) Joan was (B) he ate away seemingly enjoying both, I was sitting next to him and he was smiling at me,I thought I was a shoe in! we all finish eating in great expectation, me especially, surely he'll pick mine! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO he picks (B) says it's more flavorful, spicy, delicious, smaller in size, what the......he reminds us that elderly folks eat less.....duh! what does that have to do with how it tastes, then he proceeds to ask who was who, Joan of course was thrilled and Peter sat their gloating, and my hubs assuring me that mine was just as good, just different, I then asked Joan what kind of sauce she uses, she tells me "oh it's simple I open a LARGE can of tomato sauce and then open a package of Lawery's spaghetti sauce seasoning mix" I tried to hide my surprise, tomato sauce I lost to a can of tomato sauce......It was all good fun, our Tuesday's with Paul remain a highlight of our week, and it will be a regular post for me. I encourage you to reach out to your friends and neighbors, It's a blast!
