It rings true to me that the way to someone’s heart is through food. My CF loves pasta and we really don’t eat it anymore. As a result he is a big fan of a certain restaurant that serves a delicious spaghetti squash casserole with chicken sausage. Healthy and hearty it solves his cravings for Pasta. And so it was that on Sunday I worked most of the afternoon to duplicate the recipe as a surprise for his return to Dallas. It was pretty delicious (if I do say so myself) and I would only make a few revisions the next time I make it. The dish was a satisfying and delicious alternative to pasta that I look forward to making it for him on his next visit. No doubt he will be able to improve on it. This is not false modesty but rather an acknowledgment that he is a better chef than I. That said, the aim was for him to know I was thinking about him, and of that I am fairly certain I succeeded.
