Our daughter had a ballet recital later in the day. We were all planning on going, but our son was sick, so Robin took her. She was the best one in her whole class, naturally.
Robin had a hankering for lentil soup. To obtain Chris’s approval for the dish (he’s no fan of lentils), she promised leftover pizza. Turns out there was no pizza. Chris would like to think this an honest mistake.
Happily, potato croquettes (prepared from Wednesday’s mashed potatoes) more than made up for the lack of pizza. This was not the most Christmas-y meal, but it was a wintry meal. And a darn fine one at that.
