Sometimes my grouchy 88-year-old neighbor Stanley snowblows our sidewalk. Today was one of those days, Bless His Heart and his 88-year-old stamina. As I stayed holed up all day cooking and whatnot, I thought it might be a nice idea to take him a big bowl of steamy homemade chicken soup and a couple of Sophie’s Recipe homemade potato pancakes (which I made for the first time ever today and they were fantastic!).
He seemed surprised to see me when he came to the door (I’ve never taken him anything before) but he heartily accepted it and said, “Thanks, Michelle.”
