Posted on April 24, 2015Final run-through We started out with a play date at my visiting teachee’s house. She is moving, so I watched her kids while she packed. My kids loved her back yard, and Candace came and joined us to make it extra fun. Candace karate chopped the swings instead of pushing, and the kids thought that was hilarious. When I came over, Mary told me to go away because she was afraid she might have to trade the fun for more boring fare. Candace trying to demonstrate that Percy is friendly and lovable. Lydia gave a skeptical pat. I did a practice run through of my final dinner tonight. I forgot to take pictures!!! Argh. You can see traces of it on the kids’ plates: fried chicken (first time I ever tried it), baked cheese grits, salad, glazed carrots and apple cobbler. I made it in two hours…but I miscalculated the chicken. It took an extra hour to fry up all the batches of chicken. I’m glad that in the final, I only fry one chicken, and I can do it in one batch in the deep fat fryer. That gives me some hope I can get it all done in the two hour window.
