GN: What’s for dinner, Gram? I’m hungry.
Gram: Monday Lunch.
GN: We’re having lunch for dinner?
Gram: No, Honey. We’re having Monday Lunch for dinner.
GN: What did we have for lunch on Monday?
Gram: I don’t remember, Honey.
GN: But you said we were having Monday’s lunch for dinner and I don’t remember what we ate for lunch on Monday.
Gram: We are not having Monday’s lunch for dinner. We are having Monday Lunch for dinner.
GN: I’m confused.
Gram: I can tell.
GN: Oh! I get it! What is Monday Lunch, Gram?
Gram: I’ll show you the recipe I found. It’s in my potato cookbook and it looked like we would both like it.
GM : (peering at the recipe) THAT’S what smells so good.
Gram: Yes it does. I thought the smell would call you to the table. That’s Monday Lunch.
Monday Lunch is a potato soup recipe with some meat in it. My old cookbook called for diced hot dogs, but I found a recipe online that called for bacon. The online recipe varies from mine a bit, but not a lot. It’s very hearty soup.
GN: Gram! We should come up with other recipes for the rest of the week!
Gram: I suspect that’s already been done, Honey.
I can’t wait until she asks me what’s for dinner tonight . . . I love to see her cogs turn as she processes things.
