The early mornings before school with the smell of the freshly made coffee and porridge; Christmas and all the food my mom and aunt made and getting together the whole family at my grandparents’ house for dinner…
When I left home, 18 years ago, I sat with my mother and asked her to tell me the recipes for all my favorite dishes, I wrote them in a notebook that has been with me since. My notebook has grown during these years, thanks to new friends, new family and the new life that I built here. Now I’m writing this blog to put together all those recipes, for me, for my children and for anybody that cherish old family memories, like I do, and want to build new ones along the kitchen cabinets and the stove.
I hope you enjoy the journey… I’m certainly doing it.
Christie at Cookiemomma’s blog wrote on Monday this “You are supposed to be able to stand a broom up on its bristles twice a year, during the Spring and Autumn Equinoxes. It has something to do with the alignment of the sun and planets. Not quite sure of the specifics, but I do think this is pretty cool. I saw so many pics on Facebook of brooms either standing or laying on the floor and I just couldn’t help but try. The actual Spring equinox is scheduled for March 20th of this year, so y’all still have time to try. Let me know how it goes!!!
Now at what time of the year will the broom sweep on its own? That’s the bigger question”.
I couldn’t resist myself and made the experiment (with a broom and an egg) and it worked!!
Here’s my proof.
