I have gotten back into a routine after our life events and to my family's satisfaction feel at home in the kitchen again. After my grandmother passed away my drive to do much of anything was minimal. I thought at first maybe if I emersed myself in the kitchen it would take my mind from the sorrow. This proved incorrect, and I found myself looking through her recipes she passed down to me when I married Bernie. I also read recipes passed down from Bernie's grandmother Lita and she is suffering from Alzheimer's and is in permanent care now. Not the best pick-me-up scenario. Time has passed and as we all know time heals all wounds. Life is back to normal for the most part, well at least our normal.
