No food is more nourishing than something cooked for you by someone who loves you…period.
Grief I have found is like spaghetti. There is a whole lot going on with a plate full and you don’t know which strands to start with first. What I mean by that is every strand is a different issue in your grieving whether it be the loss of a loved one or a friend. The size pile could represent how many years where you in each others lives. There is also on what terms did you leave things when they departed. How the spaghetti tastes could be how much you enjoyed your time together because delicious spaghetti is something you like to have all the time.
How big of a bite of this plate full of issues are you going to take and does it all make sense. This is what I am dealing with is how do I address all of it. One bite at a time makes the most sense but there is frustration and how do you cope with it.
The picture above is plain spaghetti it’s when you add sauce and cheese is when it could become something different indeed. I hope this all makes sense.
My Sunday morning brunch was the roasted potato hash with corned beef. My goodness this was yummy.
Trying out a new place for Sunday brunch. Chattanooga’s Flying Squirrel is casual and fits the progressive dining scene that’s on the south side.
Brisket and sides at Edley’s Bar-B-Cue here in Chattanooga. Tender brisket, tangy slaw and some spicy beans. The cornbread was tasty and moist. Good cue for the price.
I was looking at some family photos on my granddad’s computer yesterday and a picture from thanksgiving came up where the family feast was being laid out. All sorts of traditional fare was on the counter where we serve buffet style which brought back some happy memories. Sometimes there’s more to the feast than just the food. It’s the people who make it special. Feasting can be fun when there are those who you like and love who are there to share company and to break bread.
I made this for dinner tonight. Beef tips, broccoli and onion with soy sauce, Thai chili sauce, garlic, salt, pepper, sesame oil, honey and brown sugar. Served with rice and homemade white sauce made for a good Sunday dinner.
First chill of the fall. It got cool enough to make it. It’s gonna be good. Served with corn chips, sour cream and cheese it makes a very hearty meal to warm you up.
