Supper generally includes a “What happened in school, today?” segment, and tonight Laura led with her win in “Eastern Civs”. Her presentation was a summary of Peter the Great, followed up by defending Peter the Great against Catherine the Great, as presented earlier by another student.
“You mean you presented him as greater than Catherine, and defended that!?”
“Oh, he was not prepared!” Laura said of her opponent.
“Ah, you out-Catherined him with Peter!”
“It didn’t hurt that I ended by comparing Peter to Inigo Montoya.”
We have et mighty high on the hog since my stand against water soup. Last night I followed my nose to the kitchen in advance of supper being announced. The only smell I recognized was bacon, and it can be difficult to let that alone.
Laura was making soup from a mix she bought. The bag was full of split peas, lentils, and more stuff. Alphabet macaroni were promised, but we think the split peas gobbled them down. The recipe is on the bag, as are the very best recipes, so I must keep an eye out for this one on the shelves. Tonight was leftovers, and now it is gone.
In the last important news, Laura’s quilt is penciled in on Jan’s calendar, when we get back from grocery shopping tomorrow. Pictures to follow.
