The Dad is a good chef and one of his specialties is a wonderful wild rice dish that’s reserved just for the holidays. The recipe originally came from an old Dean & Deluca cookbook that Dad loves, and includes things like toasted pine nuts and applewood smoked bacon.
But this past year, the dish came with a high price.
Apparently, this is what happens when the Dad decides to cook instead of paying one hundred percent attention to a certain ginger girl. That page is completely ripped, shredded! And who exactly was the guilty party?
Well, here’s Miss Newton for you, perhaps just now mulling over the consequences of her actions*. That was no way to get attention, girl.
*The shredded pleather couch is mostly courtesy of a young, newly-adopted Patrol Sergeant Zuzu two years ago before we could train not to do so… only to have both Miss Newton and Pia pick up the habit. *sigh*
