I’d give all wealth that years have piled,
The slow result of Life’s decay,
To be once more a little child
For one bright summer day.
~Lewis Carroll, “Solitude”
We cannot look down on the food of our childhood as if we matured past the love of cookies. These little gems cannot be resisted, and they bring such a remembrance of childhood and Mom, and brothers and sisters. I plan on enjoying them to the full. I hope you do too.
