Grandpop

I have been away for awhile again.  See the man in the blue, front and center, seated?  That is my grandpop.  He passed away this past Friday after 93 (almost 94) years. 


He spent 71 (!!!) of those years married to my grandmom and they had 4 children. Those 4 children had 11 kids and those 11 kids have had 13 kids so far. Have I lost you yet? 


He made the best potato pancakes I have ever tasted.  I will be sure to feature them here very soon.  I am thankful for all the years I had him in my life.


The cold weather has inspired some cooking in the house (finally), so I will be back tomorrow to highlight some of those dishes.

Enjoy the rest of your night.

I am sorry to hear about your loss. My grandfather who is 88 (and had been married to my mom-mom for 62 years) is very ill- no matter how old they are, it is still hard.

Love and thoughts <3

So sorry to hear about your loss. My grandmother died at the end of September and it has definitely been a long and difficult journey. I'm here if you ever need to talk. Wishing the best for you and your family.
