Mostly forgettable movie quote (15): “But Mommy, I don’t want to go to school today. I want to stay home and bake cookies with you.” (Daffy Duck in Space Jam)

 I’ve heard this from the kids more than once to express their lack of desire to attend school (though they know I won’t be home baking cookies.)

(And I posted to reassure everyone that I’m still in the game, just not every day—well, except today! Old habits…)

Secret family recipe 17: McDonald’s milkshake and fries (another pairing)*


Strawberry** milkshake

French fries

Directions: Dip fries in milkshake or stuff a fry into the straw and try to drink around it.


*recipe not personally tested in 30+ years


**or your choice of flavor (vanilla has also been tested and is acceptable, Shamrock is dubious, and does anyone even like chocolate shakes?)
