Welcome to another fine Friday! Today, I'm inviting you all over to dinner!!
If this were a real dinner, I would do all the cooking. (I'm not bad. Really.) But this internet dinner is going to be potluck. Here's the game for today.
In the comments, take the next letter of the alphabet and give us a food that starts with that letter*. Make it something that means something to you. Something that evokes some kind of emotion. Then, as you sit down to your food, let us hear a little bit about what is swirling in your head. I'll start with A.
Apples. (I know, boring.) But nothing beats a tart, wild apple. My father introduced me to them at my grandparents' house, where they grew at the edge of the forest along their road. In high school, when I used to golf a lot in the evenings, I'd load up my bag from a tree on the course and eat them as I played. Now, I have this weird wish to have my own fruit trees. For years, I've been working on a cherry tree and a small orchard near our cabin. So far, my only big success are blueberry bushes. Maybe next year! (I say that every year.)
(*For the tough letters (q, x, y & z), if the word contains the sound, that's good enough. Or just skip it.)
