My father was raised in a family of seven children, so my three siblings and I have a lot of aunts, uncles and cousins. The other night, a number of them were leaving my house after dinner and a few multi-generational games of pool.
"Do people always bring all this food?," Kim, my cousin from California asked, somewhat incredulously. Well, yes, when we need it. We asked her what people ate in California when they weren't up to cooking for themselves. She laughed. But, really. What do you eat? The last couple of weeks have been incredibly difficult for my family, and I'm glad for friends who show love through food.
