Musical warning

Published by:

For all the parents of young ones out there: If you go around the house first thing in the morning singing “I’m not sorry for the things I do / My brain is stuck from shooting glue!” you may have some explaining to do.

Breakfast question

Published by:

As mentioned earlier, rye toast is my reason for getting up in the fall. Any other time of year, I wouldn’t even look at toast. (It’s not quite the same since they stopped making Grossinger’s Rye, either, I’ll admit.) My question is this: Does anyone else soften the butter by balancing it atop an oatmeal box, just underneath the under-the-counter toaster, while the rye is doing its thing? Gets it just the perfect amount of soft. Just call me Heloise.
