What Did You Learn Today?

Shaaban is a wonderful human being that my husband works with. I've known him and his wife for almost three decades, and it's always a pleasure and an education when we get together. He's fond of asking, "What did you learn today?" and always has something new and interesting to share in case you don't have anything to discuss with him. Shaaban is celebrating a milestone birthday and approaching retirement at a work luncheon tomorrow, so in the adult equivalent of "Mom, I need cupcakes for school tomorrow", my husband signed up to bring "your delicious ziti and those good homemade crescent rolls you make". He knew the best way to phrase it so I would actually make those for him.

I spent a large part of the day shopping, cooking, and baking, and now have two pans of ziti and four dozen homemade crescent rolls to show for it. So, what did I learn today? That I would only cook all day for dear friends and family, and I really hope there are some leftovers!


  1. what a wonderful gift! (I'll be shocked if there are any leftovers ;-)

    today I learned that Pike's (our local nursery) really does take back plants that die, but I have to bring the dead plant back. I also learned I don't think we have a shovel that big!

  2. Mmm! That looks fabulous -- and such a wonderful way to celebrate someone special1

  3. That looks delicious! I'm sure that lunch was perfect!

  4. That is the question I used to ask my kids when they got home from school. It worked so much better than, "How was your day?" or "What did you do today?"

    (Can you tell I am catching up on blogs today?)
