Ask anyone that knows me and they'll tell you I'm not the emotional sort - not given to outward bursts of emotions and certainly not overly sentimental. Truly, however, I am both of those things at heart. Growing up I was taught that those things weren't "good" or "wanted" so I have learned to wall myself off from outward displays, but deep down, my roots are what they are and I love how I am.
My grandparents both passed away many years ago - my grandmother on Christmas Eve of 1986 and my grandfather shortly after the 4th of July, 1990. Growing up I have many, many fond memories of them - especially my grandfather whom I loved more than anything.
They were a wonderful couple - through everything in all their time together loved each other with all their hearts
This morning was one of those mornings that I had a warm flashback of something my grandfather would make for me, and then let me make him when I lived with him the last year of his life. Simple, but to me, comforting, a bagel with sharp cheddar, tomatoes and a little butter.
Are there foods that bring you back in time?
