Spaghetti & Meatballs with a Side of Broccoli
Someone asked me today what “was my favorite food EVER!!” Okay, this person was six years old, but still, it gave me pause. What is my favorite food ever? And when was it that I stopped thinking about things like that? And then I realized that it was time for me to start thinking about that again - time to remember more of my favorite things ‘ever’ - and time to start revisiting them again…and maybe even finding time for them again. Allowing myself to think about what some of my favorite things once were, I came up with puppies, The Nutcracker, reading The Bobbsey Twins, and spending time with my friends, didn’t even matter what we did. But, the original question was my favorite food EVER. Thinking about that brought me back to my Grandma’s potato pancakes, my mother’s sour cream chocolate layer cake, my Grandma’s stuffed peppers, a bowl filled with spaghetti and meatballs, and oddly, broccoli. I’m now determined to revisit those things and will try to hunt down some of Grandma’s recipes - as soon as I finish my spaghetti and meatballs with a side of broccoli and a nice piece of chocolate layer cake for dessert. I am forever in the debt of that six year old. What were your favorite things EVER? And how many of them can you make time for this week?
Always thinking of you,
