Homemade ice cream from
that same MS issue.
Homemade burger on the grill… recently Tony began
making burgers stuffed with cheese for the girls and they are loving it.
The burgers smell so good.

Giant crispy juicy apple

Salad bar salad…. where
you get to get different kids of lettuces, cucumber, bacon, croutons,
cheese, sunflower seeds (you know what I am talking about)… and a tip
from a friend from the past (Jeri Green) a stripe of bleu cheese
dressing down the middle> surrounded by two splashes of ranch
dressing. Jeri would take me to the Seasons Rest at the Falls’ Mall and
we would get this… crusty roll alongside please. (Becky and Jenny W took
me after her. I don’t remember what they ordered but i am sure Jenny
brought her own food even there.)

PB & J Sandwich with Lay's Classic Chips... Deerwood
Summer Camp, every Friday we went to Mathesons Hammock Park, where every
Friday I got a horrible migraine from the heat and they sent me back to
camp to rest in Camp Director's Office to rest in a/c. And the lunch
available was peanut butter and jelly sandwich with a snack pack of
Lay's potato chips. Emily made a sandwich this morning (april 24, 2010,)
which I smelled to great delight.
Fresh Strawberries and Cream... another childhood
memory. My parents introduced me to fancy hotel brunches where the
starter course often was berries and cream. Recently I read a novel,
(Lucas Davenport series- Hidden Prey,) where one of the characters had
for breakfast... Strawberries with a smidgen of cream.
Reminded me of those breakfasts with my parents. I made it
for Hannah and me. Delicious. (I still had taste buds then.) Now Hannah
is hooked. This morning I smelled hers... stil have a little plate by my
bed to enjoy with my nose-smeller.
