There is something about the holiday season and the food in particular that brings back memories from my childhood. When I was a kid my grandmother often had windmill cookies in her cookie jar. I saw these when I was shopping and thought my kids would like this culinary view into my childhood.
I always looked forward to sleeping at my grandmother’s when I was young. She used to cook special things that I didn’t get at home like baby lamb chops or corn chowder. Often for dessert we would have a windmill cookie and later a bit of Hershey chocolate. She always had a huge bar in her cupboard.
What do you remember from your childhood at this time of the year? Is there food intertwined with your memories?
BIL update: Things get worse before they get better right? There has been some additional problems which I suppose is to be expected when one has a systemic infection. He’s had some unexpected surgery and probably has more to come. I don’t want to go into too many details but good thoughts are necessary.
