  • Something happened last Friday that has never happened in all the years Tom and I have been a couple.
    As he was readying for work, I asked him what he wanted for dinner that night.
    Usually he asks me what his options are, but this time without pause he answered.
    “Meatloaf….or sloppy joes.”
    After I got over the initial shock, I filed the info away, went to work and forgot about it.
    But as the time approached for me to leave that afternoon, the thought of cooking dinner came back.
    Now, I am not a meatloaf fan.

  • For all intents and purposes, I am not  a breakfast eater in the true sense of the word. I don’t eat eggs, gravy or grits and those are pretty much the foundation for breakfast–especially in the South.
    I do, however, like to eat sometime before noon and of course, my preferences tend to run on the sweet side of things. A doughnut, a Pop Tart or a bagel with strawberry cream cheese all fit the bill nicely to go with my three cups of morning coffee.
