Erma Bombeck (U.S. humorist, 1927-1996)
TIME: 8:00 PM
PLACE: Dad’s kitchen
I made a chicken pot pie for supper. The kids and I took it over to Dad’s house to share with him and to begin cooking for Thanksgiving tomorrow. After we ate, I started making the stuffing. My recipe called for poultry seasoning and I forgot to bring mine, so I asked Dad if he had any. He didn’t, but he did have this lemon extract, nutmeg and Fruit Fresh in his pantry. I’ll bet if you combine their ages it would turn out to be close to the number of the birthday Dad will be celebrating this coming May. He can’t throw them out now…they’re practically vintage.
