It's Mademoiselle Magic Stuffing Time

In 2009, I first posted the recipe for my beloved Mademoiselle Magic Stuffing. It has become an annual tradition. Enjoy the original post here. I'm off to try to figure out where Von's is hiding the dried currants this year.

"Good morning, Mrs. Rosenberg. Robert was scheduled for an appointment with us at 9:00am."

"Oh. What time is it now?'


"I'm so sorry. It's the first day of Thanksgiving break and I... uh..."

"Are you available this afternoon?"

"I think we...?"

"We'll see you at 4:00pm."


"I'm making you another coffee, Mom."

The Tri-Fold

Thursday 11:11pm

"Bob just found out about this when?"

"He came home from school today and told me the project needed to be on a tri-fold. It was in the instructions we read a few weeks ago but we both forgot."

"Wait a minute - I thought we were going newer photos to older photos."

"I did. That's me at the top of my side. I'm just older so everything's in black and white."

"I need to re-do my side."

"I think we should have used construction paper under the photos for more color. Old color."

"Was 'midnight tri-fold' in our vows?"

"I did the Island of the Blue Dolphins diorama last year when you were out of town so technically the tri-fold should be all you."

"I love you forever for not enforcing that."

7 Minutes

Dear Lady,
So, we just want to say thanks for getting us these glorious couch blankets to eat. The seven minutes you were gone dropping Bob off at school just now were long. Like, really long. We were super bored without any delicious throw pillows or dog beds to jam into our canine mouth-holes. The blankets aren't as bouncy and rippable as the pillows/beds were, but we made do. The fun tassels on the corners were especially chewy and delightful. In a show of our appreciation we've redecorated a bit and we hope you'll enjoy what we've done with the place.
Forever your servants,
Levi and Teddy

There was a time I used to think baseball was boring. That was before I understood all of the slow moving parts are just a build up for when The Most Unbelievable Play of All Time Happens. And sometimes it just keeps happening. You just have to wait for it. This makes baseball the opposite of boring.

Now I know.
