Last Saturday night I was blessed to be the guest of honor at a pitch-in to celebrate my recent "retirement" from the public school system. I feel much too young and energetic to think that I am retired! I prefer, as one of my good friends suggested, to think of it as "refocus". I know that after a brief breather, I will be at it again - perhaps at a private school or maybe working at something that will involve my love of cooking! Although I had enough years in to retire, and it seemed I had done as much good as I could in my current position, I want the next step to be something where I can help others in some way. At any rate, my bridge group friends and other special buddies are fabulous cooks. Some of them wrote their recipes down for me and I took several pictures so I could share. Enjoy!
