A heaping helping of comfort food, simmered over the coals in a rural New York home, being remodeled, one bit of plaster and lathe at a time.

We love our Superintendent of Schools!
Our school district had superintendent's day. Why the superintendent gets his own day is still unclear to me. Yet I am willing to give him one, since it means I get all five children home with me. HOORAY for the superintendent. He seems like a pretty amiable fellow, and I appreciate the recorded phone calls he has made to our school district about a note found in the boy's locker room. Apparently a child feeling bullied, left a note threatening to bring a gun school. I admire that they didn't just discuss increased security for the middle school, there was an increase, and they didn't just urge students to pass along information about children who had exhibited threatening behavior or gun interest. He encouraged all parents and students to discuss and disclose bullying situations so they could be ended, and of course so we could get help for the child who is bullied. Not just prevent a gun being brought to school. Way to go Sup!
My five little, not bullied, children are home, pondering if a chore list is a form of bullying behavior. But the prize is we're making these beautiful nibbles. And boy howdy, my girls are so excited to make these they even picked all the toys and stuffed animals up off their bedroom floors. That is priceless.
Man, these taste so good, and they're just as cute as you could ask for.
Here's the story of a redhaired lady, who was raising a boy and girl of her own, then one day this lady met this Farmboy who had two small children of his own. The adventures began.... now we have six lactose intolerant children, an oldlywed couple, and 2 dogs, 3 cats,and a small herd of goats.
