The perfectionist

Matt and I were wrapping up crab rangoon and wontons for part of "family dinner" at our house tomorrow. I glanced at my pan,


then looked at his


Which pan would be yours?

My pan would definitely be the same as yours! They look super-yummy!

His. Compulsively.

One of the good things about his pan was we could just count them right up and know how many we had. My pan? We had no idea how many were thrown in there. . .

I'm with Carina. My pan would look just like his, but I wish I could get myself to make things look like yours. Ah, to be free from compulsivity!

I am too lazy to spend energy lining up my wontons when I could be saving all that energy for EATING them. Mine would be yours. I think I like the idea of order more then I like the energy it required to put it in to practice. That is why I can't find my kids shoes in the morning. :-)

Yummy dinner, was it an homage to Chinese New Year?

Christy said...

You obviously have 56 in your pan! Far superior to the 47 that Matt made. Long live the non-perfectionists.

Wendy, I'm Bob Valentine's daughter, so OF COURSE it would be pan #2. But I would probably reach for one in YOUR pan, looking for the biggest one possible. Is it any reason I'm so conflicted on so many issues?!?

Bek, it was for the girls birthday dinner at our house. We did a little celebration last week of Chinese New Years at Matt's aunts house. Madison wanted Chili and Cinnamon rolls. Molly wanted "Cranberry Goon" and wontons. Nice combo huh? We certainly had plenty of energy left to eat them up. We had another pan full and almost all of them were gone that night (thanks to all of Matt's family being here).

Christy, you're so funny, but I do believe I saw an extra one smashed into my pan, so lets call it 57! Yes!

Just FYI, it's also a well known fact in our home that Matt is not allowed to cut vegetables. It takes FOREVER since they all have to be the exact same size.

Lisa, you're welcome to steal from my pan of crab rangoon anytime, perfectionist, or not. :)

J will volunteer to cut some veggies up before I get home to aid in dinner prep. However, I hate when he does because they are just not cut right.

Swallow pride, accept help, do not stress that the onions are not sliced properly for stir fry: all my mission.

p.s. my house is not organized, but the food looks perfect.

Before Wendy outs me on this too...all of my shirts hang the same direction.

Am I reading too much into to this? My word verification:

ofdorstk = o fst dork

Bek said...

Matt,

Are you that guy that has to turn all his dollar bills the same way before you pay for something?

Isn't it funny that a Lisa/Matt/Derek marries a Topher/Wendy/Rebecca. It is like built in "drive each other crazy"!

Which way do the kids fall?

My word was kaayy

Bek, Matt said that he doesn't have to line them up when he pays for something because they're already line up the right way in his money clip. Stinker.

Madison said her pan would be like Matt's. I have a feeling Molly's pan would be like mine. She's a "free-spirit", I guess that's a good way of putting it.
