Once I survive the back-to-school tornado, I always reflect on school years of the past. The first day of school conjures up a new smell of the grade school hallway & echoes of anxiousness, which are always distinctly different on the first day than each day that subsequently follows.
Having witnessed my three children through years of education, I've noticed that it goes by in a blink & I was reflecting on funny memories I have of those days.
One memory I recalled was of my middle son, Ethan, when he was in second grade (all those years ago.) His class always had a unique way of causing trouble; he learned how to play Texas Hold 'Em (3rd grade) and he was privvy to learning many other ways of expressing himself verbally.
We were heading home during that first week of school & I asked the usual "what did you do today" and he told me at recess they played a new game - spin the bottle.
Hmmmmm. Rather than expose my shock, I calmly replied "Oh...well.... how do you play spin the bottle, Ethan?" To which he answered something to the effect of "duh Mom, don't you know? You get in a circle, spin the bottle & when it lands on 2 people, they go in the closet and dance."
Sigh of relief. For THAT year.
Make a family memory with one of my favorite recipes. Bohemian Rhapsody, by the British band, Queen, is a classic rock song, of which we paid tribute in Recipe Records with the recipe for Bohemian Rhapsodini...you can click on the graphic below, which is a page out of the book (thank you Julie!) I highly suggest making a family memory along with this scrumptious chicken. Don't forget to watch The Muppets version of Bohemian Rhapsody......
Peace, Love & Food.....
