Father's Day and Hospitality

I always wonder how I should be/treat people who come to work on projects at our home. In the past two years we've had a slew of them through our yard. Today our play land was delivered and installed in our backyard.

I was inspired by Monica of the homespun heart to show my gratitude to the young men installing our children's new plaything. While I was making pizza for lunch out of Matzos, I decided to make extra so we'd have some to share. I took out a plate and some soft drinks while they were finishing up. It was a small thing and had I planned ahead of time I probably would have whipped up some cookies. But, I feel better for having done it.

And you know what? Those matzos make a nice thin pizza crust and went together so quickly. I topped them with sauce, white cheese, parmesan cheese, tomato slices and a sprinkle of Paul Prudhomme's Herbal Pizza & Pasta Magic Seasoning.

This year I have a blank where father's day is concerned. My father is on dialysis and not in good health. His hobbies are few and he takes care of them himself. And he needs nothing. So, I'm making pumpkin pie for him. It does not require a trip to the grocery store. Pumpkin pie is not his very favorite but I think he'll like it just the same.

*The Paul Prudhomme's seasoning is wonderful but a little goes a long way. I try to buy it on sale and like to include it with the other herbs and season for wedding gifts.*

Great job in offering hospitality to those working on your project! It just is such a rewarding feeling to do some little day-brightening thing for others!
