The Way Things Were…..

I am not sure how the conversation started…..but at lunch today the topic was Sunday. The day was about family, plain and simple. On Sunday everything was closed…….today in our time there isn’t a single day when that happens, even on Christmas day.

Sunday was about family and food, and when you’re Italian that means a lot of food.cavatCavatelli and meatballs…….comfort food.

Pizza made from scratch is a close second.

A time when love not convenience was put into food. Food tastes so much better when it is made with love being the first ingredient.

Technology has brought us so far and given us so much, but is it a fair trade I wonder?

Do you remember how exciting it was when there was an after school special on t.v. ? Who needs that when you have a 24hr cartoon network? I think a funny experiment would be to put a kid today in front of an old t.v. , how much whining would ensue every time that kid would have to get up and manually change the channel?

Somewhere along the line the importance of family has been lost. Family used to be every Sunday… often do you eat dinner with family that doesn’t live in your house? Birthdays, holidays,weddings, and funerals and even then it’s only if you are lucky.

Today I said farewell to my “little buddy” at work.  It’s a good thing for her and I wish her success and happiness.  We all brought in food and I concocted a new recipe.breakfastItalian Egg Casserole

Spray an 8×8 pan with cooking spray

Tear up bread without crust to fully cover bottom

Tear up bacon and cover bread completely

Layer with shredded  mozzarella cheese

Layer with 1 small container of tomato-basil feta cheese

Layer with diced tomatoes

Mix 1 1/2 cups of milk with 3 eggs

Pour over casserole

Sprinkle with parmesan cheese

Refrigerate overnight

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes *covered*

Uncover and bake for 15 more minutes

Sprinkle with more mozzarella cheese and some parsley

It was pretty tasty if I do say so myself.

I should get a gold star for actually writing this one down before I forgot it…..usually I forget.???????????????????????????????????????
