My dear Aunt Kathy, queen of sewing ballgowns (among other things), is also quite a good cook. As are my other aunts. And mother. And many uncles. She and my uncle Kevin hosted my parents and us four kids on three different occasions for a week long stay at their place in Colorado. In addition to putting up with 3 teenagers, she would often cook dinner. And boy were her dinners good!
One time, on the way back from the mountains, we got stuck in really bad traffic. All we had were lunch leftovers - wilted iceberg lettuce and mayo. But we were so hungry.... so it tasted good. But not as good as the vegan chili we ate after FINALLY getting home to Kathy and Kevin's.
