Yesterday was not only my late grandfather's 101st birthday, but also George Washington's birthday. So, as is our tradition, we celebrated by eating a typical George Washington dinner: Ham (my little guy's favorite meat)
Corn Bears (which George's mother would absolutely have served, if bear shaped pans had been available back in the 1730s)
and potatoes, green beans, spinach and cake. For the guy who really invented the job, and refused to be king, holding a birthday celebration, even nearly 300 years later, seems the least we can all do!
