Chicken and Noodles.
My Foods teacher in high school would of scoffed at the same colored food on the plate. But I was excited.
This meal has become one of our absolute favorites. Christmas, 8 years ago, my Mom-in-law taught me how to make noodles. Tony and I had just started dating 3 weeks before. At the time I thought I was helping with the Christmas meal. What my now husband had to inform me was that I had indeed begun "daughter-in-law training." A process that Tony's grandmother had taken her through. Slow, sweet teaching of their future daughters in preparation of them caring for their sons. It was their way of passing the baton.

This last Thanksgiving my Mom-in-law was in Grandma heaven. She sat with several of her grandkiddos around her rolling, cutting, and laughing. She took time to soak in each of their individual personalities. Like she took time to invest in Tony and my future, she was now taking time to invest in these precious little ones futures.
