OMG….I am my mother

by | Aug 8, 2011 | Blog | 1 comment

(Food heals, Part II) Honest to God….My mother walks into my kitchen this morning with a package of chocolate chip cookies from a local grocer.  She asks me if I want them for the kids.  I ask her in return why she has them and she says, no lie, “I bought them for the garbage man who always taken my cans up to the back for me. He was not here today and I did not want to leave them with the other guys who do nothing.” OMG….I could not believe it.  Mirror, mirror on the wall; I am my mother after all!

This should not be a revelation to those to know me.  I save aluminum foil that is not fully  used; I keep the paper towel on the Windex bottle under the sink….I only used it for a sec!  And, I have to admit, I re-gift a good gift bag.  They are rarely dessimated when opened and why not save the environment and the cash?

I love my mother. She is the best mom, mother-in-law and grandmother.  It would be an honor to be like her.

KarenHello and welcome.
I am often asked, “What is Pasta on the Floor?”
Pasta on the Floor is different for everyone. It is a recipe that tells a story and inspires them to try something new. For others, stories of family, joy, loss, and hope engage with them. This brings me a great deal of happiness. I do not take myself too seriously, so be forewarned the subject matter is open and truthful. In many ways, Pasta is a tale of life, and I think you will find familiarity and commonality as you scroll through these pages.
