I have always told my son that unless you want to do something forever never do it more than 3 times in a row, if you do it becomes TRADITION.

On the Sunday after Thankgiving we always decorate the Church and afterwards Barb serves everyone Ham & Beans. The other people bring stuff but Barb always makes the Ham & Beans it is TRADITION. Well this year Barb was going to Illinois for her daughter's wedding. They thought about moving it to a different date, they asked Barb to make them ahead anything to avoid breaking TRADITION. But Barb was going up early and staying to take care of her Grandson during the honeymoon there was no way she was going to make Ham and Beans this year. I knew Barb felt guilty SO..me being the rabble raiser I am said "There are other people who can make Ham & Beans" Guess who got to make them?

The package said serves 50 and there are usually around 15-20 people there so I thought that would be enough. Barb gave me her TRADITIONAL recipe and I cooked up a humongous pot of Ham & Beans and took them to the Church. Everyone was perfectly happy, everyone had seconds, I felt really good about it. Hopefully a new tradition was started, Barb is not the only person in the church who can make Ham & Beans.

And neither am I.

    This isn't related to this entry or anything, but I didn't notice your blog's subtitle until now. I didn't realize you were a Douglas Adams fan. Big Grin

    Isn't everybody? Seriously though I like the way he takes the ordinary and twists it around to make it something extrordinary.
