My mom passed away 4 years ago.....before that she suffered from alzheimers.......before her alzheimers got the best of her, she made the best rice pudding for my oldest daughter (according to my daughter...I don't like rice pudding).....I never paid attention to HOW she made it...what she did that was so special, and any recipe that I have tried does not match my mom's.......I have all her recipes....but that is not written anywhere....last night I made pan-fried haddock....my mom made THE BEST pan-fried haddock....I wish I could have called her and asked HOW she made hers so good....mine was a miserable excuse for pan-fried haddock..something that seems so simple...same thing for her fish cakes...meat loaf.......soup...these were all fantastic when mom made them...problem is those "recipes" were in her head....now lost forever......so...just saying....ALWAYS GET THE RECIPE!
On a brighter note...I have been working on "Seven Days of Creation" for the past couple of days...another wonderful design by Paulette of Plum Street Samplers...I love this design, but needed to put it down for a while....my mojo for it has returned.
We are supposed to be getting some snow this weekend, so I think that I will put on a pot of chili tomorrow morning, so that we can have that for supper and other than that...I don't have to go anywhere, ofcourse I will be shack wacky by the time the weather clears.....but is that really any different from the normal me???? LOL
Have a great day everyone!
