Every time I’m out visiting my mom, I cook a few times. I’m not sure why, I just do. This time I made something that I thought was simple — home made marinara sauce with grilled steak, fresh mozzarella cheese, and lightly-dressed arugula. To me this is a simple dish. To my sister, her husband, and my mom it was a complicated meal because I started the sauce last night. Though it was a basic meal (and only of fair quality since I chose a cut of meat that was, to be polite, filled with connective tissue) hey lauded it and me to no end.
And this is why I love my family.
