That is when I knew for sure that I was on a Switzer family vacation. We tend to invent new things/make things up. When it is for a good cause. Like a festive meal.
Just the name Jamaican Luau probably makes you jealous that you weren't there. And you don't even know what we had to eat.
But don't worry. Because I'm about to tell you.
It all started back when I was a little girl and I came up with a cooking/cleaning rotation that would make everything run smoothly and deliciously.
Except for I wasn't that little of a girl. It was only a month ago. But it was before I received 10 more years of sun damage during this trip.
So, my parents and Bethany volunteered to be the chefs/party planners for Sunday night.
Do you remember me telling you about themed dinners?
Good. It will help explain this situation.
My parents went to Jamaica last New Year's. They fell in love with jerk chicken (a food... not a person). They fed it to us and we fell in love with jerk chicken. So, my parents decided to cook jerk chicken with the "fixins" but turn it in to a Hawaiian luau because they love that too. Two themes in one. A fantasy come true.
I thought that maybe if I typed it one more time in this post... then you would understand what we were eating for dinner.
I kill myself with my repetitive words.
My Mom went all out with the decor. She decorated the house and the table.....
And then she decorated us......
