Suspicious of My Cooking

Over dinner last night, Mom reminded Lyn that she could make a suggestion for what we should have for dinner the night they arrive.

Lyn asked "What does she know how to cook?"
"Just about anything we could think of."  Mom replied.

I realize it has been a while since she's seen me cook and that her Alzheimer's has probably erased what memories of my cooking she may have had.  However, I find this little exchange typical of my sister and highly amusing.  She's suspicious of my cooking and is probably recalling the days, two decades ago, when she had every reason to be suspicious.

Mom is suggesting that their first meal here be something simple.  I will do my best to comply and quietly chuckle to myself as I do so.
