Duck Feet for Dinner

Abigail landed her first job about a month ago. She is working at Cracker Barrel as a hostess. It's exciting to see her stepping into the "real" world, making her own money, and learning to navigate her new responsibilities.

One of her first obstacles was that she has been asked to two different proms on different days before she got a job. She was needing to have 2 Saturdays in a row off to be able to attend. She put the dates in and they originally turned her down to have the days off. She asked again and put down hours she *could* work earlier in the day of prom so she could do both. The first prom is this Saturday and she just found out her schedule today. I got this text message from her today:


I was excited for her and relieved that she didn't have to juggle working and getting ready for prom. Then I got a second text from her:

Can you plz make me some duck feet tonight for dinner to celebrate

Although no one outside of the Valenta family knows what "duck feet" are, I laughed out loud at her "celebration dinner" request. 

When the kids were little they always called bow-tie pasta "duck feet" and it has stuck ever since. :) They sort of do resemble duck feet!

Yes Abigail, in celebration of you not working on prom night we will have duck feet for dinner. :)
