Having lived all over Iowa, I’m used to trying over-hyped ‘upscale’ joints with pricey dishes that sound ambitious and delicious on the menu but aren’t so great on the plate. I’m sure you can think of some.

Home this mornig with my 5-year-old, who was sick much of the weekend and remains ill at this hour. Pre-Christmas plague is a hoilday tradition in our household. Put up the tree, string some lights, turn on some carols and grab a bucket.
I’m thinking of all those single or child-free people who gripe and complain about parents getting extra time off for their kids’ illnesses. I wish some of them were here right now to enjoy this time with me. Happy Monday.
UPDATE — Tess rallied by late morning, to the point of asking for corn dogs for lunch. It’s a Christmas miracle.
