Food induced memories
We were sitting down at the table for a dinner of mac and cheese, peas, and melon.
MB turns to me and says I miss Adam.
Adam was the owner of our favorite restaurant in NY and a good friend of ours there. MB loved to go to Adam’s as he always had hidden coloring books for her and made her a very special (yummy even for me) mac and cheese.
We used to go there at least once a week and MB was never shy of asking the hostess for Adam. Having me text him. Or looking for him herself. When she saw him she would give him the biggest bear hug ever. It was MB’s Cheers. She knew everyone and always felt special. I loved how she considered that her place. Made for some great memories and meals out.
One time we went from brunch together and stayed for hours listening to the band, coloring on the brown paper tablemats, and just enjoying each other.
Ahh food-induced memories. She does have my DNA.
I remember so many places and things by the food.
Always growing up there was excitement about going to this city or that city by the food we were going to eat.
It might be just mac and cheese, but it is the start of many more food memories to come.
Love you Adam!
