Foodie

foodiePam could cook.

The oldest of ten, she saw it done well; homemade, quality ingredients, massive quantities.

She married young. Joe was special; smart, funny, motivated.

They shared values, life goals, interests, mutual attraction.

Love came easily, a perfect match.

I-am-not-a-foodieOne month into married life, Joe surprised her.

He didn’t need homemade dumplings, 10 pork chops, buckets of mashed potatoes, au jus.

“You know, we could just have a frozen dinner once in a while.”

Pam exhaled.

Will be back soon. Thanks for all your comments and concern. ❤️ Van
