An old roommate called asking for my mom’s tabouli recipe this afternoon. The thing about family recipes, though, is that we’re so accustomed to making the basics we don’t even think about looking up or writing down the process. All of mom’s recipe cards look like this. Even if I’ve never made a certain dish before, I’ve just learned to interpret the process from the ingredients.
…Mom’s recipe cards are kind of a metaphor for life.
