Recipe Review
Today’s Recipe and Location:           David Leite’s White Gazpacho with Crab        
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

         I love the idea of the crab salad, but cold soup does nothing for me. One of the best parts of soup is the hot, warm, comforting feeling you get while eating a large bowl. So, how do I feel when I eat cold soup? Who knows, since it has never happened, yet. Okay, I know it is hard to judge something that you have never tasted. You’re absolutely right – I’m a wimp.

Gabbin’ About Gratitude

         I feel that I am fortunate to get a little more intelligent as I age. Experience is the key to gaining knowledge. I guess there are those who don’t learn from their mistakes, but I rarely repeat the dumb choices in my life. I thank my parents for helping me obtain my Master’s Degree in Education. This gave me the ability to earn a living, and reach for the stars.

Memory Musings

         One of my favorite school memories will always be of working on the fifth grade musical at Munhall Elementary. We took these performances very seriously, and they were extremely well done. All of the fifth grade teachers worked on it together. We had sets, costumes, music, dancing, and singing. The plays were always musicals. Our music teacher, Kathy Mizgalski, was amazing. I really miss working on these plays. Maybe one of the things I should add to my bucket list is to work with a local company and volunteer to help with anything that they may need. I love that idea!

  2. "May I have some Grey Poupon?" Hi Dr. Scent! Jody Petersen here, a former 5th grader of yours. I am now a 3rd grade teacher (writing parodies of songs, inspired by yours which I still know!), engaged to my fiance Michael, and enjoying an active life. I think of you often, especially as I reflect on my own teaching. Thanks for being an incredible inspiration to me. I hope you are terrific!
