When I heard the news about Harry Belefonte’s passing, it took me back to the early 1990s and the movie Beatlejuice and the song Day-O.
So please sit down, pour yourself your beverage of choice, and let me take you on a journey down memory lane full of laughter, tears, and a heartwarming family moment. It all started on a beautiful fall night when my son and I were returning from college night at the high school. Little did we know that we were about to witness a heart-wrenching scene that would leave us questioning the fate of our beloved dog, Stormy. But amidst all the chaos and uncertainty, something unexpected happened that I’ll never forget. As we gathered around Stormy, worried sick about her condition, the famous song “Day-O” from Beetlejuice started playing on the TV. And in a moment of pure hilarity, my ADHD-prone family started singing along in unison, bringing a much-needed smile to our faces. Every time we recount the scene with the dog, we agree it should have been in the movie. As I reminisced about that unforgettable night, it reminded me of our family’s favorite Sunday dinner recipe. And trust me, it may be a little off the wall, but it’s delicious.
