It's Toasty Woasty day!

There were six kids in my family growing up and we made a pretty good mess at the supper table. So mom always spread out newspapers on the table before we ate to make for easy cleanup. One day in July she (or some family member) decided to have a day when we didn't use the newspapers. That became "Julius Day" - our made up family holiday.

I told this story to my kids a few years ago and they asked what our family holiday was. I was cooking breakfast and said the first thing that popped in my mind - so now every November 20 is Toasty Woasty Day.

So we had toast this morning. And "dippy" eggs.
