I swear all I have done this week is cook, cook, cook, and cook some more. I have made lasagna noodles from scratch, turned milk into ricotta cheese, steamed homemade tamales, kneaded bread for cinnamon rolls, and pressed corn tortillas so that we could have enchiladas. I have sent more time in that kitchen this week that I usually do in a month. It was all in a good cause, Dakota's last week at home was full of all his favorite foods. I managed to make every single thing he requested. Now he is on his way to the airport and the kitchen is officially closed. If someone in this house is hungry may I suggest raman noodles? Alonzo knows how to cook those.
I will do the same for each of the boys as they leave home. Everyone deserves to be spoiled a bit before they are kicked out of the nest for good. All the same I really hope that the next boy (Alonzo) heads out for bootcamp or college he wants to eat at all his favorite restaurants during that last week.
