Be careful if a train engineer, a snowplow, and a fireman come to your door!

Plow snow, Leo, not your cousins!

It seems the English bob for apples on a string (not in water). The kids worked together and eventually used their hands to get a bite. Thanks to Nigel for making it happen.

For Dinner Tonight

Filed under: Uncategorized — fehlhaber @ 2:03 pm

I loved this recipe in the paper yesterday –

Start cooking those noodles, first dropping a bouillon cube into the noodle water. Brown the garlic, onion and crumbled beef in the oil. Add the flour, salt, paprika and mushrooms, stir, and let it cook five minutes while you light a cigarette and stare sullenly at the sink.

— Recipe for “Skid Road Stroganoff,” from “The I Hate to Cook Book” (Harcourt, Brace, 1960), by Peg Bracken.  Her obituary, very entertaining, is here.

Other funny food writing was the mom of two teenagers getting an Alice Waters refrigerator makeover.

Who did you love?

Leo loves Baby, so much so that he’s falling apart. I loved my Snoopy, so much so that he got a skinny little chicken neck and his head fell off. Who did you love?

Leo wasn’t awake much for his first Halloween, but we dressed him up as a lion anyway.

For his second Halloween, we caught Red Sox fever and he went as David Ortiz.

A View into the Quarry

A view from the bus on our way down into the gravel pit.  The cranes & schoolbus look like toys and in the middle, you can see the enormous sandpile they made for the kids.

A set of these tires costs $70,000

Finn and Leo hard at work

The most expensive photo prop I’ve ever used!
