Almost all children who leave home yearn for their mother’s cooking, and if they are lucky and their mother really likes to cook, this yearning is even stronger.
Although she has always tried to surprise us with new flavors and combinations, I will always want those simple dishes … the kind of food that we often eat and that she prepares with crazy ease, because just like that, today is the day of the easy casserole dish, the dish that is so simple that it doesn’t need a recipe.
The list of her dishes is huge, but one recipe will always smell of mom and the love she has given us by cooking for years is the Potato Casserole with Chicken loaded in the oven.
I often make this dish myself, but I never expect my house to taste the way I remember it. When I want to eat this dish, she goes on stage and, for the umpteenth time, brings me back to the round table in the living room.
It’s nice to make Sunday dinner special and spend that time with the people closest to me…. Some meals are like that, slow and scented with a linden tree that is brought by the wind, smiling and joyful….
