She’s a story and she helps everyone else tell their story. All kinds of stories from how the electric utilities changed the world to tales about Aunt Mabel touring the world in miniature pitchers.
Auntmama will take you back to her beloved Blue Ridge Mountains where time moves slower than a honeysuckle breeze. Then she’ll snap you back to the Northwest where sunlight halos Mt. Rainer, slugs feast on the dahlias, skyscrapers grow faster than the Douglas fir, and the Pacific Rim calls from over the horizon.
She’ll want to know about your home, your folks, your work and your story, too. Lot of stories pass through her kitchen. “Work and love make a life,” she says. Lots of good food comes through that kitchen too. You can get the recipe or order take out. The recipes have changed over the years. Raised in a no-carb-left-behind kitchen, Auntmama is trying to improve on some aspects of traditional southern cooking. No possum will be available but nephews and nieces from Kazakhstan, India, Cuba, Africa and the Caribbean have certainly added new spices and foods to her kitchen. Your family recipes may be changing, too, so an old-fashioned recipe exchange is a good idea.
And that sounds like another story. So come make yourself comfortable and tell it.
