Thank you WendyP!

Since my parents cannot cook meals anymore, I will be making them a nice dinner. My plan is for a prime standing rib roast. It's been a long time since I have tackled this meal, but I am confident (thanks Anne Burrell!). LOL!

I was hesitant at first due to cost, but b/c of COVID (either fear of infection or restrictions), myself and my parents don't travel, vacation, or even go out to eat. It's been a LONG 3 years! Besides, with my parent's health issues, a "sit-down" meal at a fancy restaurant is just a NO-GO anyway now. So a little voice popped in my head, "If not now, when? Life is fleeting, splurge for the meal & enjoy this time with your parents!" So that is exactly what I intend to do!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend in the Land Down Under!

I also extend Easter well-wishes to all the MIP members!

Hi PosiesandPopies, was lovely to hear from you, I hope by this time you have cooked the most lovely meal for your Mother and Father, and yourself as well, and it turned out the way you wanted it to. I can smell it and taste it from where I live.

I, like your Mum and Dad, have health issues, and my daughter cooks a lot for me. I do some for myself but it is so painful, also with the Covid here, I don't venture out much only when I have to. But because I have so many food allergies, I wouldn't be able to eat anything anyway, I just sit and watch everyone eat.

My beautiful daughter, has just made me some Marshmallows, and has perfected some Violet Crumble. I feel I have won the Lotto, as I am not a cook. So over Easter, when everyone is eating wonderful Chocolates, I have my Marshmallows, and Crumble, I don't feel so alone, just watching others eat what they have. Most times it doesn't worry me, as it is  just the way it is,but sometimes, it does, I feel alone, and isolated.

So, as My Daughter is to me, you  are a Darling, to do what you are doing for them, they are lucky to have you in their lives, as not all Adult Children are good to their Parents.

Love WendyP.
