We're having some of the crew from where Bob works over to dinner tonight--The Kids. The Kids are the techs and the thirty and unders
, some of whom I know from yoga. Funny, the engineers, middle-aged guys mostly, don't show up at yoga so much. But Kayce
, who is part of an all women improv
group (they do improv
musicals! It is slack-jawed amazing to watch! Improving songs where they all sing the same improvised chorus to the same improvised melody--we're going to see one of their shows in a couple of weeks where they do Star Trek improv
) and Courtney, who has done more stuff than most people I know and who is one of the few guys at yoga, are a lot of fun to be around. So we're having a bunch of people over for dinner because they are young and energetic.
Is that an old fart thing to do or what?
I'm making pork tenderoin on the grill, tofu satay with Thai peanut sauce, grilled veggies, and Bob is picking up good ciabatta rolls. Tiramisu for dessert. And Bob is making Buddha's Cosmos and Manhattens, plus the usual assortment of soda, wine and beer.
The really fun thing about cooking for The Kids is most of them have the kind of lives that don't involve a lot of sit down dinners. So they are appreciative. And they take the leftovers home.
