I went searching thru my papers looking for something to create a zoo page with for the Willow Traders LEO challenge, which was to include something that you would have normally thrown away. I came across this newspaper clipping of when Rick (now 17) and I were featured in the local paper as "cooks of the week". After wiping the tears away, I quickly ran downstairs and grabbed bags of what would be two ingredients in one of the recipes and slapped this one together. Not any embellies, other than the chip and M&M bags which were the recycled items.
My mom really was a great cook, and like the article said she could whip up a mean in no time at all. There are a few things that she made that I have never been able to duplicate (such as those wonderful baked beans that she was requested to take everywhere or that pork roast with dumplins) but I do think I picked up alot of cooking skills from her. Gosh these are such happy memories and these are happy tears that I'm crying, happy that I had a mom like her!
