7. Writing Challenge : Dinner Guest

A Lazy Friend

A few months ago, one of my friends who is very lazy invited me for lunch; but it was such a bad party that I said to myself, I would never accept any invitation from her.

Actually, I am a hospitable person and I used to invite this friend a lot and receive her very well, but when I was her guest, the lunch was served at 4:00 PM. 

I thought to myself, how nice it was if I would teach her a good lesson, it was a good idea if I would invite her to dinner then I would give her a simple dinner at midnight.

For the menu, I would serve just cucumber-yogurt appetizer with bread and if the dinner table would be set at midnight then she would have understood how bad she treated me at her party.

For the discussion, I would like to ask her, “ What is the good time for eating lunch, especially in a party?!!!” Surely, she would answer: “ It is good to eat lunch between 12:00 to 1:00 PM.
And my second question would be “What are the preparations before inviting a guest? I would try to teach her that before inviting a guest it is better to plan for the party, to buy the ingredients for the food the day before, get up early in the morning and not to be lazy in cooking.

Cucumber-yogurt Appetizer

If you like to try it, here is the recipe:

First, wash some cucumbers and grate them in a bowl then add some yogurt and decorate it with spearmint if you like, It is good for hot weather.

Hi Estanis

I'm sure you can make a well decorated and tasty cucumber - yogurt appetizer....hope you enjoy it :)

Similar kinds of it such as tzatziki (satsiki) in Greek and tarator in Balkan, but I just like this one.

Thanks so much for your nice comment.

It looks tasty for this season, I've never heard about this dish so I may try as it seems easy to do.
Thanks for sharing.
