The Face Behind the Spoon
That would be my face, Jennifer Morgenthaler. Other names I am called? Jenny. Jen-Jen. Morgen-shorter. Mrs. M. Mrs. Morgenflower (as my kindergarten students say). I teach elementary school music by day. I help kids express themselves, create, and appreciate the things that make life more colorful. When I get home at night, I am exhausted! Sometimes the thought of cooking after a taxing day is a daunting prospect, but once I get into the kitchen, I start to mellow. It becomes my turn to express myself, create, and appreciate the power that good food has on my state of being.
Two personalities frequently grace my kitchen. Morgen-taller is my attractive food taster, copy editor, sous chef, technologist, oh, and husband. Morgen-shortest is the newest addition to the kitchen; a soft coated wheaten terrier. Mostly she resembles a muppet and entertains me as I cook.
