Moving on through sadness...

When we decide to become a mother we make the decision to live forever with our hearts ourside our bodies....later I want to remember who wrote that quote or look it up!

No dinner in this house today...but, trying to move on I found a blog that I am happy I clicked into, maybe tomorrow I will make this online adaptation of  our families delicious Pasta 'e Fajole.

1 -tablespoon olive oil

1/2 - cup chopped onion

  1. Yesterday I made this for a busy easy Sunday dinner and we really enjoyed it; crusty Italian bread was wonderful with it, too!

    Hope you try it,

  2. Gail, I'm sorry you're sad. It does sseem to help to keep busy or cook or bake something. I hope things will be better soon.
