Hi Everyone – I’m not posting a recipe today, as I usually do .. just a few thoughts… One of my sons is coming over tonight for dinner with his two (adorable, but I’m prejudiced) children. When I asked him if he had any particular “Mommy Food” he’d like me to make, he asked for the pie I make with roast beef – namely – Beef ‘n Mushroom Pie… said he’d really had a “hankering for it”! He wanted to be sure it wasn’t too much trouble – and I assured him it’s not! So, that’s “what’ for dinner tonight”!
Often, between working (either at home or at a job), we can forget that everyday things – and not just special days or holidays – make memories. Both of my (twin) sons remember how I’d take them, one at a time, out of the tub, wrap them in a towel, then cuddle them and sing a song before getting them dressed. In fact, at my own twin brother’s wedding, they went up to the band on their own (at age five) and announced they were gonna sing – and the song they chose was one I used to sing after their bath. They were a big hit!
Meals – no matter how rushed – should also be times which can be remembered fondly. Think about it – there’s very few people who don’t occasionally say, a bit wistfully, “I remember my mother’s wonderful meatballs and sauce – or pot roast – or macaroni & cheese…” So, ask your family what their favorite meals/desserts are, and make them often. You’re not only filling those empty tummies – you’re making fond memories which will last a lifetime!! Enjoy!
