Clump #184: Throw out old Easter candy and give away basket. Day nine of the 30-day, 30-post Bedroom Blast Challenge: clearing out our son’s room one clump at a time.
I really can’t remember what year I sent this Easter “basket” to our son at college. The bunny pasta has an expiration date of 5/08/14, so one of us should eat it up soon.
So much uneaten-candy … how can it be that I am genetically linked to this guy? Sadly, at this point, out to the trash it goes.
In other food news, I made 48 of my turkey, lettuce, cranberry sauce, and mayo sandwiches for an interfaith Lenten service and luncheon held today at our Quaker Meeting.
If my husband had been around at the time, I knew he would have been singing, “Sandwiches! Sandwiches!” I chuckled at the thought. You know you’ve been married a long time when you know each other’s favorite jokes. And I guess you’re lucky when you enjoy them. The origin of “Sandwiches! Sandwiches!” is a play on the song “Savages” from Disney’s Pocahontas. The movie came out when our kids were young, so we all enjoyed multiple viewings … it was one of the soundtracks of their childhoods. In the song, both the Native Americans and the English view each other as savages.
Somehow this theme seemed appropriate for a day when people of many different churches worshiped together. Too often religions alienate rather than unite us, which has always seemed convoluted.
More than 100 people came together today, worshiped and broke bread.
This was all the food that was left. More Sandwiches! next year.
I left the same kind of felty basket for my three kids last year and they, too, left a lot of uneaten chocolate. Your monster face is a nice touch, as was the bunny pasta!
