Another Nuni Monday. My step-dad prepped pork chops in the crock pot, but it was up to me to make the side dishes. The Minute Rice was extra fluffy. The vegetable was… freshly steamed ASPARAGUS!!!!
Nuni tasted it and boldly critiqued that the asparagus was not done. We sat and ate, and can I tell you, she slowly ate the majority of those healthy green stems. Later, a dear friend stopped by with dessert. Nuni was able to enjoy BOTH a dark chocolate torte as well as lemon squares. I was trying to make her decide on one or the other and when my friend kindly interjected with a big smile, “Let her try them both.”
The moral of the story here is, life is TOO SHORT. When at all possible, taste all of the desserts!!!
