Day 44: Grandma’s for dinner

Day50_DinnerAtGrandmas Well, I took last night off from healthy eating. Grandma did not disappoint. Last night it was Chicken Cacciatore over delicious pasta with yummy garlic bread. Mmmmm. I took that picture with a cell phone. It does not do it justice. The chicken recipe itself will be a great addition to the health food diet. It was the garlic bread that did me in. But it was sooo good. I was right, too. She did have M&Ms in the cabinet. I managed not to go near those. I also resisted the toffee in the refrigerator. Butter infused sugar covered in chocolate, my favorite. Not just any toffee either. It was Enstrom’s, the Lexus of toffee. I didn’t touch it. However, despite my best efforts, I just cannot say no to Grandma’s chocolate chip cookies. I caved. It was so worth it. No guilt. Today is another day.

    Man, sounds great. I just lost my Grandma Jan 29th 2010, but I will never forget her cooking along with many other things I loved about her. She was German and made the best meals. Her real talent was baking. Lemon custard cake, black chocolate cake, apple cake, etc. Im so glad you got to spent the evening in your Grandmas company. I always cherised those times. They have lived thru so much change, that I would just be in awe when she would tell me about her childhood, adulthood, career, children, etc. Thanks for sharing!

    I am sorry to hear about your Grandma, Sara. And so recent! :( But I am glad you have such great memories of her. She and my Grandma sound like they have some things in common. My Grandma LOVES to tell stories about old days almost as much as I love to hear about them. I hope you get a chance to try out making your Grandma’s recipes!
