To Two, Too

Posted on | April 6, 2011 | No Comments

One of my favorite material gifts is also one of my favorites on a more ethereal level. Years ago, when I was first “setting up house”, my late sister gave me a packet of hand-written recipes. There aren’t a lot of things that I cook, but many of my favorites came from that handful of cards.

The card I turn to most often is for Grandma Johnson’s Banana Bread. It is a sure fire hit, just ask D. Though I like to tweak the measurements sometimes, a little less sugar, crunchy peanut butter rather than butter, I always pull out that card for the basics.

And I always laugh.

Because my sister wrote “…prepare to loaf pans…”. My sister was a writer. She was smart. She knew which to/too/two to use. She was also a perfectionist who would be mortified to know that in her haste to write out those recipes, she committed that error to perpetuity.

And yet, her error contributes to one of my sweetest memories of her.
