Lunch Box Chronicles: Day One Hundred And Fourteen (The Healing Power of Food)
My sense of needing to do something rubbed off a bit on Spencer, who made the lovely round shaped rolls, which are a variation of garlic bread. He combined crush fresh garlic, Kosher salt, and extra virgin olive oil, and rolled them in the dough. They were delicious.
My mother looked at the feast and asked if we were having a throng of guests. "No," I said, "Just making some food for the family and a friend or two."
I brought over the fixins' the next day to my friend and her family. While the food did not heal the breaks or bruises, I hope they were filled with just the right amount of love to make the pain go away, at least for the moment of the first taste.
