Today's favorite moments included . . .
. . . sitting on a bench with Daniel and Anna (Joy was on a date with Daddy), watching the trains go by in the cool evening air.
And another thing . . .
. . . being the family cook is a lot of work, but it has at least three major benefits: 1) You get to cook the food you feel like eating, within reason, 2) If a recipe turns out well, you have the dual satisfaction of eating good food and knowing you created it, and 3) If you don't like how a recipe turns out, you never have to worry about it being cooked in your home again.
