What to Cook During Band Season

One of the great joys of our kid's high school years has been their participation in The Brick Township High School Marching Dragons. My oldest, a Jr. music ed major at Montclair State University played the trombone and was the drum major during his senior year. (You can see Rob in the third picture. He is trombonist with the long blond hair.) My middle son is a Jr. this year and plays the saxophone. His girlfriend is the captain of the color guard. So from about mid-October, our life is spent following the Dragons around the State of New Jersey. This past weekend the Dragons competed in their Division Championships in Allentown, PA. They did great job and came in third place out of eight bands. I posted a video of them from earlier in the season. They actually were much better at the championship as they added some more complex marching and tightened up the music.

The question for all marching band parents is "what to cook during band season", because the kids and often we are never home. So the answer . . . lots and lots of pizza. For this reason, I haven't been doing a lot of blogging during this time, but I am back and hope my dear readers will start to stop by here again more frequently.

Have Fun!
