So while being forced to stay inside during this current winter storm, I went to Target and purchased some random reading materials. A few magazines and then this book:
I love to read, but I really don't know a lot about what's out there.
So I usually just randomly pick....and yes, at times, I do judge the book by it's cover.
I finished the book yesterday.
The book is about a writer who has recently been laid off and finds comfort in her grandmother's recipe file.
I have to say that this book really struck a cord with me.
Probably because food has always been at the center of my family.
For as long as I can remember, I've always been in the kitchen with a family member cooking.
And the great thing is all the stories and memories that go with all of our family recipes.
My grandmother's birthday is coming up this month.
I'm going to buy her a note book.
I want her to write down ALL of her favorite memories.....about childhood, marriage, love, etc.
How awesome will that keepsake be once she passes on, to keep her memory so alive?
I definitely say this is a Must Read!
