We occasionally have game nights.  One of our favorite games is Taboo.  We had started with parent-child pairings, but once the kids discovered that they were more successful if they team up with each other (instead of with a parent), it's now always us vs. them.  They somehow always manage to beat us.  It's like they have their own unique language!  J is excellent at giving clues and Z great at getting what he means.  They have their own secret references to things.  Maybe not so secret; maybe we're just not young or hip enough.  Hmmph.  We tell them that we're just going easy on them whenever they win. They smirk and go, "Yeah, right."

I've not played Taboo. I love games tho. We had a games afternoon and invited people over for drinks and nibbles. Some people thought it was a bit strange but some people really got into it. I adore 10 days in Africa.

Sounds like a fun time at your place. Kudos to the kids for winning. Kids are so quick at things. We always played games, and still do when the kids and their family come to visit. :) I'll have to check out this game...don't think I've ever played it.

Such a fun game! You've inspired me to get ours out of the cupboard and play it again. Always good for laughs together.

Shreading the brussels sprouts gives them a completely different texture and even taste! Kind of like cabbage I suppose. Just make sure if you try this recipe to stop when you get to the inside woody leaves. So full of fantastic vitamins.
