After taking Sibling #2 to his new dorm for the year, I returned to the Chicago area and stopped by to see my family and say, "bye," to Sibling #3, who was packing to leave the next day, and see how Sibling #4 was preparing to leave for her first year in college. (Sibling #5 is moving into his new dorm as I type and Sibling #1 has a few weeks before she will settle into her school-year residence.) And YET...... that isn't the adventure I'm here to blog about!
Have you ever had oysters? I hadn't. That shortcoming has recently been remedied:
My oysters. Oh! And some battered and fried alligator. I forgot! I hadn't had that before either!
This is, apparently, how it is done.
And since no blog is complete without a picture of what I had for dinner:
Hazelnut crusted tilapia and green beans. A new recipe for me to play with.
Stay tuned for pictures of my composting worms!
[The above numbering order of my siblings is not representative of when they left for college. Nor is it representative of how much I love them. It is merely their birth order after me. I apologize for any confusion.]
