Home Ec was the Best Show and Tell Yet
I’m so pleased with Monday’s Home Ec-themed show. Thanks so much to everyone who came out and to the wonderful presenters. If you’d like reminders about future Show and Tells, please like Show & Tell on Facebook, and one of these nights I promise to figure out the mailing list thingy to email announcements on a polite and non-annoying basis.
Here’s what it looked like:
Your hostess read an essay called Colleen vs. Southern Food and showed my collection of unfortunate cookbooks, including the Anita Bryant Family Cookbook.
Kurt told of raising poultry while making egg salad.
Brandy told about her domestic yet nontraditional grandmother, while making her grandma's icebox cake.
The crowd listened, laughed, then ate the yumms made by Kurt and Brandy.
FIT grad Kyle represented the fashion aspect of Home Ec, with a gallery of his high school polyester disco shirt treasures that culminated in a jaw-dropping fantastical prom getup that landed him on the front page of the paper.
Giulia told about her mean girl best friend from high school, and conveyed a valuable lesson about grooming and not burning your face.
Thanks to all who came and please come to the love-themed Show and Tell on Valentine’s Day, at 8 p.m.!
