Election Day 2008

Well, we made it.  Win or lose, it will be over tonight.

Here is what my love wore to work today.

We shared a grin when he came into the kitchen this morning.  And a kiss for good luck.

(Heaven knows we need it.)

I voted early (and fervently), so my work there is done.  But I do have other things to do for election day, and most of them, happily, involve an apron. 

Here's what's on the menu for tonight:

All-American hamburgers


home-made french fries


rootbeer in a bottle (the only way to drink it)

and, of course,

home-made apple pie (my specialty).


There's nothing better to celebrate with or be consoled by

than a perfect apple pie.

Perhaps I ought to make two.
