“What you do is not who you are.”
I thought I’d put a really obtuse quote at the beginning of this entry so you might get caught up in that and not in reading about my gaffe, which is not to be confused with a gaff. One can be used for whale hunting and the other is a mistake, which I will now address.
It all started with a trip to Chicago with my daughter and granddaughters.
Side note – When people remark on the beauty of my daughter and granddaughters, the correct reply is, “The apple does not fall far from the tree.” If something goes amiss and progeny do something questionable, the correct response is, “They take after their father.” Just trying to help.
But back to my “story”. After our Chicago trip we began texting as a group. One of the texts contained the recipe for sweet potatoes that appeared in yesterday’s post. I didn’t read all the fine print and believed that my granddaughter, Em (center), had posted the recipe. It was not Em’s recipe, but rather a recipe from my daughter, Lori (far right). I said I would re-write the post but my daughter assured me that she didn’t need more fame in her life.
Just want to give credit where credit is due. Thanks, Lori. We love the recipe. Decided on a correction blog and something about telling the truth. How am I doing?
Finally, another text came through from Em (still in the center), warning us of some kind of food outbreak and telling us to throw out any romaine lettuce that we might have. I thanked Em for the info and told her that I already knew about that particular impending disaster. I assured her that all my romaine was in the garbage and I was eating only fudge and ice cream to keep myself safe. My daughter, Lori, said she would be following my advice. What are mothers for?
And finally, as long as this post is, for the most part, useless, I want to know why we call it ice cream when it’s really iced cream? I do need something to keep my mind busy, don’t I?
