I love that I routinely get phone calls that start, "Hello. I want to make a pie." Or even more common, "It's me. I have a cooking question." Of course it's not surprising in these days of texting, that just this week I got separate texts asking about the ingredient list for Nanaimo Bars, and how to make vinaigrette. Which is all quite amusing to me, considering I spend way more time sewing and blogging than I do cooking these days. But that hasn't always been the case, and my roots in food-love and the table are deep. So these calls and texts are a good and welcome reminder of what truly feeds me and my family and friends. And I am glad for them all.
