"...I hope they remember how I let them draw in the flour as the dough rests. The weight of my hands on theirs as we roll out a circle. How small tears are easily mended with a little water and a gentle touch. That no pie is perfect, but all are perfectly imperfect. That slowing down, taking time, and creating something homemade together brings us closer...."
you can read more at everyday storytellers today.

my momma is here visiting us.
maybe i will go get some apples and she and i can make her apple dumpling recipe today. a perfect example of connecting through food and traditions, and yummy too.
happy monday
xo.

I was just thinking the other day if my girls will remember/appreciate one day the "wierd" food I make them try/eat? Like will they have an expanded pallet when they're older from eating dolmades or arroz con pollo? There's no nuggets and mac n cheese in our house.
