As I have blogged about before, I am not a great cook, but I’ve been really trying over the last several months. Yesterday I made Cream of Tuscan Tortellini (it’s the main soup I make) and it was delicious! A couple of times a week I bring my dad dinner and today I brought him some of the soup.
I warmed it up, prepared the whole thing and was dying for him to try it, because I still want my dad’s approval even at 38. My dad is pretty chatty so it took him like almost 10 minutes just to try the first spoonful, but once he did, he said he loved it!
I don’t know why, but it made me so happy that he liked it so much. I think at times, we all revert to our childlike selves and want our parents’ to be proud of us, even if it is just something small, like soup.
