On another post we were talking about cookbooks we like to read and I thought we all must have at least one interesting personal story that would make for good food reading. Like the time my mother was away and my father, sister and I we were making spagetti and it kept boiling over. My father never cooked and he didn't know to turn the temperature down on the boiling water. The sauce was no problem.
As children we all sat at the table as a family for dinner. If you asked for the salt to be passed my father instinctively would add salt to his dish and then pass the salt. So my sister and I would ask for the salt, he would salt his food. We would pass the salt back in front of him and we would ask for the salt and again, he would salt his food. Then he would complain to my mother that she cooked with too much salt.
I have many more but I bet your stories would be great to read. I hope you jump in and jot one down.
