Keen Observations on Life … Whether You Need Them or Not

All Together for Dinner

Leave a comment

I forgot to post this when it ran on November 9, but thought if the post-Thanksgiving turkey leftover blues were pitching you over the edge, you might like a different flavor.

I read a call for family dinner stories and recipes a couple weeks ago from the News & Observer, and wrote in. I’m pretty certain that, aside from my obvious wit and charisma and kick-ass recipe, they liked the tagline I added to my salutation: “Kickin’ it old school as N&O subscribers.” Who could have ignored that clever closing?

I had no idea they were going to print it, and my M-I-L called from Charlotte, laughing, telling us that she was reading the paper after dinner (the day it ran, Nov. 9) and saw “The Sickles Family” and thought, I know the Sickles family … turns out the piece ran in the Charlotte and the Raleigh editions. 🙂

It’s cool to see my vetted pizza recipe on the N&O, with a callout link to the actual recipe. Check it out when you get a chance: All Together for Dinner.
