Food and Memory

I’ve got a menu for our small Thanksgiving for two. In the past we’ve seated 10-13, but this year it’ll just mom and I. Sounds like a lot of food for two, but leftovers. I love leftovers. Mom not so much.

And as I’m only one person, I freeze in portions for days when I want comfort. And is there anything more comforting than the aroma of Thanksgiving dinner cooking on a cold January or February day to recall the myriad memories of family gathering around the table.

Memory lives in our senses: smell, sound. So even though there will be only mom and I this year, I’m cooking it all, albeit in smaller portions. And we’ll make a memory to recall in the coming year.
