I used to come home every day with food ready for me at the table, and the second I stepped in through the door I could smell my mom’s delicious food. Although I miss having cooked food ready to come home to, I started looking forward to cooking for myself. I still eat some form of the foods I was raised with, but I have adapted them a bit.
