Mom called me up tonight to ask me out of the blue, how I felt about green beans now that I was grown up. I love green beans. In fact I had green bean stir fry last night at Saigon Kitchen. Apparently I was forced to eat green beans as a child, and after swallowing a mouthful, promtly threw them up! Well that show’ed them didn’t it.
Fortunately I didn’t remember that green bean event.
Another food memory brought on tonight, by Slash Food, was of my halloween costume when we lived in… Texas I think? Or maybe Germany? Do you remember it Mom- my taco outfit?
Goodness gracious- was that my idea or yours (and do we have a picture!)
I wore red tights (we didn’t have beef colored tights…) with a large felt tortilla circle wrapped around me, arm holes for my arms to poke out from. Mom sewed in green lettuce frills peaking out from my taco tortilla… and maybe there was even cheese? I remember the tortilla folded with me in the middle, and tied closed in the front.
Hey- it got me candy!
