There is nothing like a home cooked meal…or, so the Senator says.  Which is why he enjoys having his colleagues over for dinner during the legislative session.  He particularly likes inviting those members over who live a great distance from the Capitol and are unable to go home to their families each night.  
This year the King’s Ranch Casserole was back by popular demand… and my kitchen and I lived to tell about it.  Never mind that it looked like a fraternity house for a while, but what would you expect with eight grown men hanging out?
Once dinner was served I left them to their own devices and discussions. I mean, seriously, someone had to begin the monstrous clean up!  
Meanwhile, these guys played pool, laughed a lot, watched a basketball game and discussed all of the world’s problems.  I’m not sure what they were laughing at, or who won at the pool table, but I don’t think it mattered.  The Senator should do this more often. After all, the world has a lot of problems that need to be solved, right?
