Yesterday’s Lazy


What a joke?

There is nothing lazy about a day when annamaria’s girls all gather at her house for dinner.

“Come on I’m baking the chocolate chips.” Alessa was busy baking.

“I’m chopping the veggies to put on top of the Salmon.” Ariana took out the cutting board.

“What veggies are you going to cut?” annamaria asked.

“Whatever I find in the fridge,” she yelled while her head was stuck in the refrigerator. She was opening and closing the veggie and meat drawers.

annamaria was making mashed potatoes. Rogers was busy over the stove making the gravy with mushrooms. Amanda was helping. Poor David, Alessa’s boyfriend, was leaning on the counter watching the chaos around the kitchen. Mr. B was busy making pita chips and babaganush.

Sunday dinner is a special event that happens pretty much once a month, but this time Amelia was missing. She had to work all day at the hospital and then had to do a take home exam. She was excused from the family chaos.

With so  many busy bodies in the kitchen, it was a miracle the meal came out so delicious.

I learned the true meaning of a Lazy Day at the Bazzi residence.

well, I need to go find something productive to do.

See ya.
