Tough break for Dad, and tough break for you.Hey Guys, doesn't look like Dad will make it down. It seems he pulled his back while helping my brother with the riding lawn mower. Funny how it seems I'm so disappointed that a trivial thing as dad not getting to eat mom's tater salad can make me blue.
There's nothing trivial about old family recipes, I would be disappointed too. Back in the mid 1980's, I regularly made potato salad for my grandfather, who was real out of sorts when his wife of 50+ years had to go in a nursing home. He was old school and had never cooked a meal in his life, so relied on the kindness of friends and families.
Good food is not a cure for what ails you, but it sure helps. You'll have to make arrangements to get some tater salad to him. It will be good for him and good for you.
