I am a mother of two, boy 39 and girl 36. My husband is retired, but still working a little for IBM. I have always cooked like a farmer's wife.......because that's what my mother did...cooked for farm workers for two meals a day sometimes. I still cook for an army and there are only two of us. I guess my daughter appreciates it, because she gets all the leftovers.!! Our family left our home state in Indiana in l985 and moved to Arizona. Quite a change. We love it here, but really miss home even after this many years. I've loved being in touch with home via Zaar.
