April Fool’s Day
It is spring break in other parts of the country. It is interesting because it was never a big deal when I was growing up in southern California. But when I moved away I began to understand why! In a Word – WINTER! And that is not a season that is part of California! We have flood, fire, smog and earthquake!
So, anyway, we have visitors! I love that people I love want to see me and the kids (OK – well they really want to see the sun and the beach and Disneyland, but I do provide free lodging!)
Wil, Lorraine and Pip are here, who are really family to us, and we decided to go to Farrell’s, which is making a comeback in Southern California. So, and this is not a joke, we went to the website to show the kids the menu (the Zoo, the pig trough, etc) and there were vintage photos on the website. The first one posted is a picture of my neighborhood and me in approx. 1972. Freaked me out! The picture I posted here is my dessert! It is chicken (like chic-o-sticks), mashed potatoes (ice cream and caramel sauce), and candy peas and carrots! Too fun and the perfect thing for the holiday!
