Friday Peaked!

Some of my students requested my presence at their Invite-a-Teacher event in Home Economics. I was much honored! The huge classroom transformed into a formal dining room. Students set the round tables in muted tones of green and dotted the cotton tablecloths with fresh flowers.  20141205_083957

We dined on crunchy green leaves and croutons in the Caesar salad, soft and savory ground meat buried under tasty lasagna and topped with a pile of gooey cheese, and buttered toast where the butter indented the bread.

For dessert, we chose between cheesecake and pumpkin squares. I accompanied my cheesecake with milk-drenched coffee sans sugar. (I never add table sugar to anything that is already prepared.)

Estefenia, Martha, and Vivian made the cheesecake, so I had to have that delicacy. They kept me company and made interesting conversations that caused me to laugh often. You made my day, ladies!20141205_090024

Being in that room took me 20141205_090000back to my own days as a Home Ec student. After the teacher introduced new British or international dishes at Girls’ High School, I would run home from the dormitory, buy the ingredients, and cook it for Papa. He ate all the familiar and unfamiliar dishes and never hurt my feelings. My father.

Thanks for a day that peaked!
