Comfort Food for the Mother's Heart
Notes from the Nest

Motherhood and Apple Pie*

*Or maybe I mean humble pie ...

Bookworm: "Hey, Mama, did you know that there's this thing you can get at McDonald's - it sounds really good. It's like a bar ... only it's an apple pie!!"

Me: "Oh, sure, I've had one before. They're not bad actually."

BW: "Really, you've had one before?"

Me: "Well, not since I was a kid."

BW: "Wow, really?! I didn't know they'd been around that long!"


P.S. Tonight's menu is a boy's dream, our "homemade fast food" night ~ cheeseburgers, french fries, onion rings, and steamed corn ~ nary a pepper to be found. ;) Usually we have little ice cream sundaes for dessert with this supper, but instead we'll enjoy a jelly roll in honor of President Lincoln!
