Pop Quiz! Do you know which President is on the dime*?

It totally relates to this story and even if it didn’t, you should know anyway. I mean you could be on Jeopardy some day.

Before I give you the answer, I will share the story that I call ‘A funny thing happened on the way to the Thomas Jefferson Memorial': This past Easter Sunday, we were walking around the Tidal Basin when my very excited son yelled ‘Mom! Dad! Who is on the Dime?’

We both replied ‘Um…..we can’t remember. Why?’

Ben belted out ‘Well, I hope it is not Thomas Jefferson because he has a small head and only half a neck!’.

We could not stop laughing. His response was not as pleasant as he yelled at all of us and stuck his tongue out at his sister.

A child’s intellect can be dang delicious.

Are you wondering why I called this described this recipe as ‘Cozy’? Well, the way I see it, if you can make a ‘quick as a whistle’ meal, then you have more time to cozy up to the ones you love.

Go on, cuddle.

*So, did you look up which President is on the dime? Yup, Franklin D. Roosevelt. I won’t tell anyone you looked it up.
