My mom & my sister are nuts. Thank goodness, I'm totally normal. Ahem. I just know the cooking instructor was glad to see the 3 of us return for another class, considering how much we'd rather chat & drink Sangria than actually cook. We participated in the cooking though and had a ton of fun at this Spanish-themed class. Paella was the main course.... ummm YUMMO! Or maybe all the fruit in the Sangria was the main course? LOL
At one point, my mom was given the task of flipping the slices of bread (to be served with the tapenade we made) on the open flames on the grill. The idea was to put them on the grill & flip each one to the other side before they burned. Only the flames were so high that the smoke was getting in my mom's eyes, so she was stopping to rub her eyes frequently, while each piece was getting a bit too black. Finally Marci said, "Geez, Mom. Just let me do it. You're not doing it right." Marci quickly figured out how hot it was by the grill though, and that it wasn't as easy as it looked & said, "Are you happy now, Clark? She's deaf." I burst out laughing! It's just one of the many stupidly hilarious quotes from the movie Vacation... which she quotes from all the time. My mom, on the other hand, had no idea what she was talking about.
Oh.... the laughs.
Insanity not only runs in my family... it sprints!
