here and there

Talked to my Aunt yesterday and asked her how her day was going?
To which she replied, "I have a chicken in the oven, need to steam some broccoli and make a small salad.  I have a pan of brownies baked!  David is coming for dinner! "

Her son and daughter in law have moved in a small northern Ontario town but drive in everyday and she has them over for lunch.. or more like a dinner. 
Aunty was certainly in good spirits and says she'll miss this when they both retire in June and are living in their new cottage that they built at the lake.

I got off the phone and envied my cousin and the wonderful meals and times with his Mom! I wondered if he appreciated this time with his mom.
Here is the Brownie recipe she gave to mine at my last visit before she moved out of her house to an apartment.. As she said it is "very good and makes a lot"
