Wednesday: Salmon Pasta http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/232148
Well, I have a sixteen year old and the truth is, he is an eating machine. The result is that my carefully crafted menu plan has been consumed! My menu called for grilled salmon on Sunday and I planned to use the left overs to make this delicious pasta dish. Unfortunately, the human eating machine ate it all and I don't have any salmon left to make this pasta. I do have some canned salmon in my pantry and so I am going to try an emergency substitution. We'll see how it goes!
Reflections from the Backcounter: School Projects
I think that on many levels, homework is a terrorist plot to undermine the stability of the home. As if it were not enough to supervise and evaluate the homework of my own three children, I am, as I write this, helping my ten year old niece write an essay about the origins of a new constellation. I’m thinking that if she cannot accurately spell constellation that we are starting from a negative position. Luckily, my dinner is already cooking and I have a few moments to spare. Oops, need to stop and sign my son’s schedule for next year. I am confident that multitasking requires 2 X chromosomes.
