Food/Needs Connection

Monday, December 22, 2014

MEMORIES & FOOD*

Fudge - time spent in kitchen with Mother. The name "Harris fudge" even associates it with connection.

Cheese - Sunday midday meals with Dad - him slicing up the Colby cheese

Grilled cheese, tomato soup - being a kid, ?being at Moriarty's (neighbors, babysitter's home)

Mint candies - white and pink lozenges - family trips

Buttercream frosting - having a project, feeling accomplished. Plus birthdays, celebration.

Mashed potatoes - comfort food, holidays

Sweets - what I/we made during childhood

Breadboard/large wooden cutting board - cutting out sugar cookies. Can't seem to find right recipe. fun. doing stuff as family.

Colored sugar cookies - fun and tasty.

Mac & cheese - symbol of being nurtured (?maybe) , just being on the receiving end, allowed to just be a kid.

****************************
********************

I am going to make some sugar and/or cutout cookies on the breadboard to see if I can recreate the feeling. Hasn't worked in the distant past - haven't craved the not-quite-right cookies. Can take any cookies in to work.
