odin instantly spots changes in packaging like this mustard bottle and freely offers his opinion. “why did they put the mustard on a knife? you squirt it out of the bottle and don’t need a knife to get it out.”
“moonlight mist”. love listening to the notes floating through the house. amazed that he’s sight reading his way through it.
odin and i are convinced that of all kinds of pies strawberry rhubarb gets better as it ages.
the secret to a really awesome pie that ages well? orange zest!
i don’t know how anyone can eat strawberry rhubarb pie without a coup of vanilla ice cream.
remember when i tried to fix the piano? not only did i not fix but i broke some stuff along the way and ended up having to get The Piano Man to come and clean up my mess. and odin lost 3 weeks of ability to practice at home. d’oh!
all-in-all not too bad of a bill for mainly a tuning that we needed anyway, but still, a lesson learned.
odin told me The Piano Man told him i really shouldn’t try to fix the piano if i don’t know what i’m doing
odin loves ov cheddar cheese. in fact, he’ll tell you it’s his favorite cheese ( specifically ov raw sharp which i find amusing because when i was his age if it wasn’t pizza cheese or american cheese i didn’t want to anything to do with it ). but he mostly eats it on dishes – primarily tacos and beans and rice and cheese and kale – and not as a snack. he likes pepper jack, but it’s not even a top five favorite.
so, easy bet, right? medium cheddar would be a home run. bzzzzzzt. he and his buddies loooooooove the pepper jack. we can’t keep enough of it in the house.
you’d expect cheddar to outsell pepper jack so it’ll be interesting to see if odin and his buddies predict a national counterintuitive trend.
maybe we need to get him into the product development process a little earlier
tennis with odin ( CRUSHED HIM! ). “inside out” with odin ( awesome! ). aaand hockey practice with odin. all-in-all a spectacular father’s day. i did manage to squeeze in a 5 mile run too
at the end of the day as i was putting odin to bed i thought it’d be fun to attempt a rare selfie with him and i. frida heard him laughing at all the failed shots and decided to check out what all the commotion was about.
i don’t know why we have two rhubarb plants in the garden. so. much. rhubarb. so time to make strawberry rhubarb pie and jam!
