She’s a real “meat and potatoes” kind of girl who likes plain things, so if I make something spicy or complicated, it had better taste good.

I had some fresh green beans that were about to go, so as my grandmother (the one who wasn’t a fabulous cook but did raise and feed 7 children) would say, “Throw it in there. No need to waste.”
