A Recipe from Mom

  This is my mom and my dad.

 I recently received this note attached to a recipe from my mom in the mail.

It made me pause, sit down and read every word. It was so sweet that she took the time to write out this recipe for me and it really meant a lot to me. I am always amazed how small she writes. The older I get the larger my letters get, probably so that I can read what I wrote!

I can't even remember the last time someone gave me a recipe that they had taken the time to hand write. I don't remember the last time I took the time to write a recipe out by hand. When anyone asks me for a recipe, my automatic response would be to send it by email.

I will save this recipe with the attached note from my mom in a safe place because it is special to me. It was so perfectly written, I had to get my glasses to see if she had typed it or written it out by hand.

Several of my sibs have asked if I had this recipe and I couldn't believe that I didn't have it in my file. Our mom made this every holiday and sometimes in between for special occasions. Now we all have it, thanks to mom!

 Thanks Mom!

  1. Connie, love the articles, and keep them up. As we get older I think we treasure what we had as a kid and want to hold on to the memories. I have a few of my mom's handwritten recipes that I can't seem to part with. Thanks again Connie
