I remember when my son was in the fourth or fifth grade and was into all things Medieval such as Knights, Hobbits and Jousting!! In fact I believe we still tell the tale when he
stole borrowed a plastic spaghetti serving spoon from the kitchen for his catapult!! No, it wasn't clean, still had spaghetti sauce on it from dinner! Unfortunately Fortunately the missile aka rock was flung straight into the dirt from his invention. The catapult was abandoned with the offending spoon still attached, HA!!
Loved the challenge of raising children!!
Around this same time he asked me to make scones, I had never made them and not sure what happened but they were just horrible, I still remember his sad face that when he learned that he did not like a dish that was served in most of his beloved movies/books! #bestmomeverNOT
I have now learned to produce a great scone!
I know he would love these, maybe he will serve them in his Mead Hall (aka Man Cave).
