"Kindness is the greatest floss..." from The Razor's Edge

When I was in college working at Muir's Drug Store on Michigan Avenue, I remember reading an article about a "rudeness syndrome" that was sweeping the country. Part of the problem, the author felt, was the younger generation's lack of concern for humanity and continual focus on self. I could not stop laughing when I read it! Interestingly though, as I shared the article with friends, family, and co-workers, they agreed with the author! That was in the seventies, and I am happy to report that forty some years later, a New York Times writer, Nicholas Kristof, believes that people are getting nicer. Well, it's about time, don't you think!!

Bunko Menus of Note

BUNKO!  How fun to gather with friends to play bunko each month. With twelve players to a group, each person typically hosts once a year.  When it is my turn, I like to go all out to have a fine offering of food of drinks for my friends.  One year, my Turkish friend Gunay taught me how to make dolmas, or stuffed vine leaves.  I bought some lamb meat, made some tzaziki sauce, and made baklava for dessert. It was my Greek bunko night!  I can't always pull off a strong theme, but sometimes I can with the help of my husband, Joe!
Here I will post some of my favorite menu items that show up at bunko.  If you are looking for a bunko menu, you might check here for ideas to spice up your evening!  As my friends know, I can't help you with the drinks...can't ever seem to get those mixtures just right, but I sure can help you with the food!
