because people speak English
It didn't take me so much time to make a decission whom I would love to invite for the dinner. I decided to follow my inner voice, to listen to my heart. Actually, it isn't bad idea to invite some celebrity or character from a book but since I have one wish, which would be able to make come true, let me dream and enjoy my fictive awesome dinner with my beloved granny.
Unfortunatelly, my granny isn't already here among us, she died four years ago and I miss her so much. I can say she is still in my heart, in my memories and somehow I even feel she is watching me from the heaven because she is and always will be my angel.
First of all I have to decorate the table so that everything would give impression like time stopped long time ago, as if almost nothing was changed. Wooden table, some simple tablecover, candles to make this moment special and fresh flowers in the vase - these I would bring from my walk to make my granny happy. For some people maybe simple, for others not good enough but I like the saying that beauty lies in the simplicity. I am imagining the dinner with my granny outside, only me and her during one nice warm October evening, somewhere in the countryside where she was born. I want to point out my granny loved autumn with all its colors so that's why I chose this season.
As for the menu I would serve something unhealthy but sooo tasty!!! Cabbage soup would make my granny so surprised and I can hear her saying to me: Ohhhh, it tastes like mine!!! But I don´t want to talk about something you maybe have no idea how it looks like, so take a look here.
Then we would continue with another traditional Czech dish - schnitzel and potato salad, of course made by me. Let me show you.
Meanwhile we are eating, so many topics to discuss would be in the air. I am sure that she would be interested in my family. Anyway, I would ask her so many questions I don't know answers for them because her death or better to say stage before death was something weird. She suffered from brain stroke and has got paralyzed for few months before she died. She was unable to speak but we all could have seen from her reactions and gestures that she understood. I would ask her what from was the mysterious key we found in her purse, if there is something she didn´t tell us or it was her secret, why she left money hidden in one book between two pages with the text about sense of life, which she must have done before it all happened. I can see us chatting for a long time, gossiping about our family, having fun, laughing and in the and she would tell me as usual that she loves me the most of her grandchildren. I know it is unfair but it was like this :)
Now time to come up with something I dreamt of would come!!! I am calling : “Kids, come hereeeeeee, join us...” What is the best to serve in such situation? Chocolate cake!! You know, she has never seen them in person because she died just few months afterwards my older child had been born, she only saw him in the pictures. To enjoy the cake with her, to see hapiness in her eyes, it all would mean so much to me.
I would enjoy every second with her and would be so happy for the opportunity to see her once more again. So see you my granny in the heaven one day, hope you are waiting for me and we will enjoy our dinner together there !!!
