They sustain me to this day
This is wonderfully evocative. I've celebrated many no-meat Christmas Eves with my Italian husband. Thank you for introducing me to the names of all the Polish dishes and the deep feeling of home you experienced in Polish Ontario.
As usual, Alice hits it out of the park. Also, I happen to love plaid pants.
Your writing is like studying a painting, filled with details. They are touching and meaningful to all who read them.
Sweet memories indeed. I could almost taste the goodness.
Another lovely story Alice. Congrats.
Thank you Alice. As the years extend from my childhood, I too think often and longingly of the meals we all enjoyed prepared by my mom. These were not as varied as what you describe in your latest piece, but they anchored us to family, home and mom’s steadfast love. Thank you for your wonderful piece and memory.
Amazing memories... that almost make me hungry!
