"It is an awfully sad misconception that librarians simply check books in and out. The library is the heart of a school, and without a librarian, it is but an empty shell."~ Jarrett J Krosoczka
NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!
We are in the midst of our birthday marathon, with three family birthdays in a row. We celebrated our daughter's birthday last week and she requested her usual Fettucine Alfredo with shrimp, wedge salad and Cheesecake Factory cheesecake for dessert. This week it was our daughter-in-law's birthday celebration, with Croque Monsieur sandwiches and Napoleons from Patrick's Bakery. My husband picked librarian quotes for her and by coincidence it turned out that the one she drew was this week's quote… from an author she knows personally!
