Ned is feeling about 90% better. I do think he might have a head injury, because he had a salad for lunch. Ned even took a picture to document this occurrence. He ASKED for a salad for lunch. I also had a salad, with lettuce from our yard. I am on this ranch dressing kick. I am going to start a test kitchen type scenario and experiment with ranch. I had the best dressing at the Woodberry Kitchen a close second from Stone Mill. I want to try and make the perfect ranch dressing. I only started liking ranch about two years ago. When I was about nine years old I got the stomach flu after having salad with ranch and steak with my grandma and grandpa. I didn't eat steak until well into my thirties and no ranch until recently. I have been missing out all of these years. There is probably no coincidence with my weight gain and the love of ranch.
Ellen came home with a new book selection. She has switched to "The Thief Lord", which is an excellent choice. Her teacher was very understanding. All is well in the Killefer household - at least for this moment!
