When I was a little girl I would beg my mother, "Tell me stories about when you were a little girl!"
She'd laugh and say, "I don't have any stories!" But she did! Just simple anecdotes of everyday happenings when she was growing up.
Now that I'm a mother, my children love to hear my "stories," too!
One Sunday recently I told the girls that we would be having a Sunday supper like we used to have in the summertime when I was a little girl...
...watermelon and popcorn!
We would split the watermelon in half, and everyone just dug in with a spoon! The salty, crunchy popcorn was a perfect accompaniment... and occasionally we would also have homemade fudge or divinity candy! The beverage of choice was sweet iced tea.
It seems like a funny meal, doesn't it? But it tasted good... and no one ever went away hungry!
Ah, the memories!
