Sad Dinner Demise

Sometimes I goof on dinner. It makes me sad. Maybe it shouldn’t, but it does. I know it can’t be awesome all the time. My husband is a great testament to that, he eats everything I put before him, but he certainly doesn’t rave about certain combinations I may concoct like others with differing palates have. Previous roommates suffered through bread-makinglearning and soup explorations, so I know I have learned some things and have a lot to learn in others. But, quiche, I thought I had down.

Not tonight.

Tonight, I think they look beautiful, but the flavor was lacking. My broccoli quiche could have benefited from a little more cheese, or having the cheese more incorporated into the egg. I have dubbed the 2nd quiche a “Breakfast Quiche”, but it was supposed to be a corn-bacon quiche with leftover sausage links. It can’t be perfect all the time! And, these mistakes do help me remember the importance of something as simple as stirring and corn.

Either way, right now, there is no move for us.

In 2007, we looked at where we were and where we wanted to be, and we decided in 10 years, we’d move. My husband moved...

All the World’s a Stage

All the World’s a Stage

All the world’s a stage. This keeps coming up for me. When I read as a lecture during Catholic mass, but especially when I help put on an event. Each space has its directors, its producers, its actors who all play a pivotal role. Each space has its problems and everyone has to pivot. And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
