Not infrequently, we, in this empty nest of ours, get asked a question or two from our grown kids.
Tonight it was a question I could answer. Easily. Sweet. Not all questions are so satisfying.
He: Hey Ma, quick question for you.....what's a shallot?
He was obviously in the grocery store buying items for dinner.I could hear snippets of conversations around him as we talked on the phone.
He: Hey, I just spotted some. Jeez, you're right. They do kinda look like garlic. Hey, thanks Ma.
Me: No problem.
Wonder what he's cooking up for dinner tonight. He's turning into quite the cook. And, to think it all started years ago when he made a batch of "Texas scrambled eggs" for his buddies.
