    I have an appointment Monday that is 0.3 miles away from Hoosier Mama, so immediately I think, what a great way to start off this appointment! Despite the fact that I will have to head right to the dentist immediately after! Then I realized Hooiser Mama's is closed on Mondays, and wondered if I could change my appointment date.

    When a three year old asks her father where cinnamon comes from at the grocery store and you interrupt to explain for five minutes as well as giving six stores in the nearby area that have a better variety and better quality. (And a couple of folks ask for addresses that overhear the conversation).

    At the grocery store, I overhear a woman asking where to find Pão de Queijo, or Brazilian cheese bread. Cashier didn't offer any ideas. I asked the woman to repeat what she was looking for, then advised to try Hippo Bakery at Mitsuwa in Arlington Heights.

    Now this lady, the cashier and the people behind me all asked for information on how to get to Mitsuwa.

    You know you’re an LTHer when.. you must make friends with any stranger roasting a whole animal:

    A week prior to cinco de mayo I heard from the owner of a mexican restaurant that he would be roasting a whole lamb for cinco de mayo, so on sunday morning I made the walk just past lawrence only to find that the lamb dinner was a total bust. Walking home with my tail between my legs, I happen to look over and see a whole lamb spinning over coals on a rotisserie being tended to by a jolly Greek man in an apron drinking a bud light. He was all alone. I kept walking, got about a half a block past when I thought to myself how stupid it was not to at least stop and tell him how much I admired his rotisserie setup. He enthusiastically invited me in for a drink and a “taste” which started with the innards (heart, liver, intestines etc) and culminated into a full on Greek style easter dinner with his wife and her parents who were the most adorable first generation Greek immigrants. I didn’t even know that the 5th was Greek Orthodox easter so it was a big surprise to me. We ended up having a great time, sharing stories about the history of the neighborhood, cooking, brewing beer and making wine.

    I love him. An unbridled willingness to share Easter with a new friend. He's a remarkable human being.
    Thanks for sharing how sharing food helps foster friendships. I'm touched again by the small kindnesses abounding throughout humanity.

    Perhaps Grace Kelly was one of us?

    "She never lost touch with her family and the Philadelphians that she grew up with," said Kelly's nephew Christopher Le Vine, who recalled his aunt packing up some Philadelphia scrapple — a love-it-or-hate-it loaf of pork scraps and cornmeal — to bring back to Monaco so the palace chef could re-create the humble dish.

    "She was going to tell him that it was a certain special pate from Philadelphia ... for petit dejeuner (breakfast)," Le Vine told the laughing crowd. "She had her Philadelphia roots with her wherever she went."

    HI,

    A friend calls to advise he has a frozen shoulder.

    "Pork?" I inquire hopefully. "No, a frozen shoulder and it is painful!" "Oh," disappointed it is not pork and still wondering what is a frozen shoulder.

    I am now up to date on frozen shoulders.
