Typically, Rob makes his culinary creations in our teeny tiny kitchen. Our kitchen is so small that it makes a kitchen in a RV look huge. From time to time, we invite ourselves to someone else’s house to make dinner. Tonight was one such night. We invited ourselves over to our friend Kevin’s house. Kevin happily obliged and agreed to help.

Rob was in the mood to barbecue and have Italian food. This unusual sounding combo threw me for a loop, but I decided to just trust him. After all, I think I’ve already established that I am not Martha Stewart in the kitchen.
Here’s the meal that he put together.

She’s strategically placed near me because
she knows that I’m the weak and VERY clumsy link.
For those that are wondering, meals are not always like this in our household. This kind of feast only occurs on the days that Rob is off. More often than not, my dinner looks like this.
After all, a gal’s gotta do something to keep from turning into this
