On a lighter, whipped-cream-topped note

Happy International Waffle Day, everyone! 

Oh no, did you forget about International Waffle Day? Don't you subscribe to waiting room classic Highlights for Children, which mentioned it in the March issue, and didn't you set a calendar alarm for Waffle Day Eve to remind you of the impending festivities? Hmm. Well, at least read the Wikipedia entry for Waffle Day, which is both delightfully direct ("Waffles are typically eaten on this day") and terrifying in its implication that today begins the nine-month countdown to Christmas. Also ignore the part where it says we celebrate waffles in the U.S. on March 24th, don't be so provincial, we are all people of the world here.

I also made Martha's Herbed Spaghetti With Tomatoes and White Beans because I don't hold grudges and also had already made a shopping list.

Good thing I went forward with it, because it was by far the most enthusiastically received dinner in recent memory:

The excitement is off the charts

Ivy is also doing fine.

Thanks for asking
