How To Celebrate a 50th?
I always enjoy reading Mark Bittman's food blog, Bitten. Over the last several months he's accumulated a few guest posters whose writing and recipe ideas are also excellent. A recent post by Daniel Meyer, dealing with his efforts to create a nice fiftieth birthday dinner for his mother-in-law, contained a suggestion that made me laugh out loud:
My first thought was to buy her a quart of ice cream, a bottle of whiskey and a box of Kleenex, but that seemed insufficiently celebratory.I have not yet reached this milestone, but several of my friends and colleagues have. Perhaps when it's my turn I will mark the occasion in this manner. We shall see.
