Last month I had lunch with my friend. While we were conversing over making our own sandwiches we commented how it’s just more fun to make a meal & eat it, even if it’s just a sandwich, with someone. Today while rummaging through my fridge, I pulled out the exact same ingredients to make a sandwich and sure enough, it doesn’t taste nearly as good as the day I had it with my friend. The memories that food can evoke are amazing! I will always associate fresh strawberries, ditalini pasta and those pink Canadian mints with my grandmother. I will always associate Elio’s pizza with Friday school lunches. Homemade Guacamole and lots of wine with Jill. Porchetta from a street vendor in Italy with Debbie. Raspberry Mousse in my wedding cake. The list can go on and on.
What type of food memories do you have?
