As time passes by, I realize time is quickly catching up with me. The day are shorter, time flies by quicker than ever before and I do not get as much done in one day as I used to. I guess its called getting older.
I really felt getting older when my ex-husband and the father of my two boys passed away this last Monday from an 8 month bout with stomach & liver cancer at the age of 61. It was a bittersweet feeling, the loss of someone I loved very much when I was very young and my only son loosing his father to the same illness that took his little brother's life when he was 15.
As we mend our broken hearts, the kitchen definitely becomes our escape from reality. One day I woke up and decided I had to make something for dinner that I truly love to eat and that would make me feel good after all we have gone through in the past week. So I decided to make some of my Spaghetti Olivio. An Italian dish I discovered many years ago in a restaurant in which I love and cannot get enough of because of its delicious flavor.
