Apple Pie and Ice Cream

Friend Gary, whom Uncle Mark used to work with in a group home, loves to visit whenever Uncle Mark is around Bentley Farm. Gary has a wonderful gift of enthusiasm, especially for food. He calls our family about once every other week and his question of choice is usually, "What did you have for dinner last night?" It's usually hard for me to remember, but Gary always remembers what he ate. He also loves to put in special orders when he comes to visit Bentley.

Tonight's menu turned out to be identical to his last visit's order - steak, potatoes, salad, apple pie and ice cream! It is so fun to observe how Gary savors each and every moment of the meal, and with such delight! (Gary couldn't stay too long last night, because he had to make it home to watch the Red Sox play the Yankees. Caleb was getting a little nervous because Gary was routing for the wrong team!)
