Election Day Tea & Treats
Normally on Election Day, I make the newsroom's evening pan of lasagna that feeds the gang before everyone heads out to collect results of all the local races. This year, my colleague Brenda, knowing I am also on Baby Watch and feeling a little antsy about the day's plans, volunteered her husband to make the lasagna. So, that freed me up to make simply a pan of Seven-Layer Cookie Bars last night. I also tried to spruce up a plain white cake pedestal to make things a little more festive, and I think the ribbon does the trick just fine.
Amazingly enough, I still have some of the Eastern Shore Tea Company's Liberty Tea my friend Ashly brought me from the White House a few years ago. I'll drink a cup or two for good luck for my guy!
And since I've early voted, and I don't have a summons to go see my new nephew, I'll be chained to the computer most of the day obsessing over every silly voting anecdote I can get my hands on. If those of you voting today care to leave a comment letting me know what you found at the polls (especially how long you waited in line), I would be more delighted than I can say!
