This morning I was prepearing lasagne for tomorrow lunch to celebrate my daughter 18th birthday at home, and was thinking the importance of cooking for someone you love, thinking of her/him/them while you are doing this .
Both my daughter & me decided to do it at home not just because it is the best place to celebrate such a great birthday but also because I can cook food that can talk to our memory , telling stories about when we were younger ( I was younger , she is still so young!)
Can’t avoid to think about my grandma & my mom doing the same lasagna receipe for my birthday or for Christmas lunch , the special moments in which I helped them with the meat sauce or for the bechamel , the yummy memories of licking the spoon at the end as the best reward of the world.
My daughter will remember me even for this lunch I did , not just by hands but with love and with fond memories of my childhood , who knows ? I like to think so.
She loves cooking too and hope will do the same for her children & family one day, always thinking of me of course!
Food means this to me : looking after people you love most and yes, in this case it is so true ,sharing is caring !
