it seemed like a love song

I may have already mentioned this in a previous post, but neither Dave nor I are romantic. In response to my concern for his comfort the other day, he responded, "We have been married so freakin' long - if I'm uncomfortable, it's my own fault." It seemed like a love song to me.

water mellon recipe

Every few years my kids find my scrapbook and look through the scraps of my life. My favorite scrap from all 39 years is a cookbook written by my Kindergarten class. The fact that it's in its original state, typed on a typewriter with purple ink, makes it pretty great. But add to that the names of the kids I knew all my life and recipes for things like "Pickle" and "Toast" and it might be the most valuable thing I own.

Here is my favorite recipe from the book:

Water Mellon

1 t. sugar
2 t. oil
1 t. powder
7 black seeds

Mix it up in a bowl. Let it get cool in the refrigerator. That's all.
