“No,” I replied. “I am out.”
“I am sending some with your dinner plate. Your mother is on her way. I put you an extra table spoonful of each vegetable as well. I hope you enjoy it.”
Vegetables? I thought we were having fried fish Friday. It turns out Helen couldn’t find that special kind of fish she uses so she picked a different menu instead. We had fried pork cutlet, corn pudding, green beans with potatoes and cornbread. I must say the corn pudding was spectacular as that was the first time Helen had ever fixed that.
