Aunt Ruth believes that life is more delicious when shared. I just hung up the phone with her and learned that Connie and she are baking cookies to box and deliver to friends.
Last week, I was really tired and a bit woe-is-me-ish when I decided to channel for what has become my inner Aunt Ruth. Instead of throwing a pity party which always has one guest, the hostess (that's me), I decided to fire up the oven, grab the sautee pan, and make a casserole, cupcakes, and even appetizers to give to a close friend whose family illness and 3 jobs hasn't allowed her much time for meal preparation.
I felt so Aunt Ruth. Humming as I cooked and smiling with each whiff of food, I forgot my cares. As you can see from the laughing ladies at one of Aunt Ruth's parties, she has that effect on people.
Magic? Try it and let us know...
