Dad's Food Comment

In the midst of our Christmas food frenzy, my phone was passed from my my sticky, onion-and-garlic-covered hand to my brother's clean one (he appreciated that) so he could send good wishes to the thirty New York relatives on the other end.


Brother: "Hey, Dad, we're having a great time and eating some great food! Sunday we had Italian, last night was Indian, and tonight is Mexican!"

Dad's deadpan comment: "What's wrong with American?"

Sorry, we were fresh out of hot dogs.

Stop worrying! Instead, focus on how to convey your love to your young adult. You can write a letter or send some photos, but do you know what they would love most. Yes, you are right, care packages full of their favorite foods! Above all, you can add healthy recipes into it.
