New post on Daughter on Duty.
The kitchen in this house was my mother’s fiefdom for 56 years. It is there I learned to squish hamburger and Campbell’s tomato soup with my hands (after supervised washing) in the green crockery bowl to make meatloaf. It’s there I mashed the bananas in the green crockery bowl for banana bread. It’s there I stirred the chocolate chips into the batter in the green crockery bowl and dropped spoonfuls onto cookie sheets.
I am a Pacific Northwest native transplanted to the southeast for 36 years. In 2012, I returned to my childhood home and fell in love with this corner of the country again. I am a grandmother, a storywriter, a teacher, an attention payer, a hiker, and a back roads wanderer. Check out my website (and my memoir) at www.gretchenstaebler.com.
