Offspring the Second is home for winter break. It is lovely to have him here. He is so clever, so smart, so witty -- it's a pleasure to talk with him.
It's also a pleasure to cook for him. There is not much cooking to be done when the only individuals regularly at home -- Offspring the Third and Beloved Husband -- are so very busy (and so often out of the house). The addition of Offspring the Second, though, justifies the effort to cook new and interesting things.
One trip to the big-box store later, and we have oodles of food to cook. That's a Heart-warming Thing.
