Well Played, Mom, Well Played

Mostly True Memoirs

Well played, Mom, well played.


I miss my mom at Thanksgiving.

She was a fabulous chef.

Her grandmother taught her how to cook.

I make their recipes every year, and it’s as if they were here at my table.

However, the very best thing I ever learned from my mother wasn’t exactly a recipe.

She taught me to clean as I cook so that when dinner is over, there’s not much work left to do.

This drove me crazy when I was a kid, but I get it now.

My mother would be very pleased.

She loved to say, “I told you so.”

Well played, Mom, well played.
