Obatzda: The Day After… And BGDO!

BGDO=Big Girls’ Day Out. Anyway, obatzda…even the First Shift liked it. “Finally! I can taste the garlic!” eldest child exclaimed… which brings me to saying that it might’ve been either too much garlic or onion for me. I also think I may have put in too much cider. It was a little looser than expected. Either way, seems the Mackerelsnappers have requested it appear in the menu again. With the most minor of tweaking, God willing, it shall.

We’re having the leftovers for lunch today, just the oldest girls & myself, between gymnastics & a matinee of The Mighty Macs. The Mr & I got to see a preview back in August, thanks to The Catholic Marketing Network. The movie is both touching & hilarious. The best part is that if your child is old enough to sit through a movie, you can feel good about bringing him/her to see The Mighty Macs: no “earmuffs” or “blindfolds” required. Faithful papists will also be relieved to see Catholic religious portrayed in a light that is simultaneously human, compassionate and positive. I’m looking forward to sharing this experience with my “biggns!”
