“I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren’t trying to teach us. We are formed by little scraps of wisdom.”
My father is at the beach right now with my mother, brother, sister in law and niece and nephew. I am missing him so, all of them, on this Father’s Day. It just so happens that his birthday is tomorrow – sometimes it is actually on Father’s day.
My Dad has always been a teacher. When we were little – and teenagers, his favorite place to trap us for a lesson was in his car. We were a captive audience on Sunday afternoon drives. He would play Lewis Grizzard tapes in the car. And then repeat quotes like:
- Cover the Kohlrabi and carrots with lightly salted water and boil until quite tender (about 15-20 minutes).
- Lightly mash, leave a lot of texture don’t try to make them smooth like mashed potatoes.
- Add nutmeg and butter.
