Memories

Today T.S. wanted a carrot to eat with his soup. When I sat down to eat I helped myself to a carrot stick and was reminded of going to El Camino in Tulia to eat when I was little. A long time ago, they would bring a relish plate to your table when they brought your chips. I remember the carrot sticks were always really good. I believe they kept them in ice water until time to serve. They were especially good in cheese dip. Nonnie would let each of us get our own cheese dip. Which is something we still do today.

Another thing I remembered was going to eat there with Grandma and Grandad and several cousins for something. We all got to have sopapillas. We were allowed to not only have honey with them but to mix sugar with our honey. The honey came in honey bears. We started squeezing them until just a little honey was coming out, then we'd let go and the honey would go back in the bottle. We were all laughing so hard that Grandma was in tears. We recall that story often and always have a laugh. Honey doesn't come in the bears anymore, it does come in packets and is still good on sopapillas with sugar mixed in. (I tried it again this summer just to be sure).

The relish plates and honey bears are a thing of the past, but out own individual cheese dip and it being a treat to go with Nonnie to El Camino are things that haven't changed.

I also think of trips to El Camino with Nonnie & PaPa and Grandma & Granddad often. I must have been pretty small at the time of the honey bear incident, but it is still such a fun memory. Another vivid memory is when I realized that the cheese dips we had all been ordering (one for each person) were $3.00 each--now even more than that! I was in college when I finally thought to look at the price and I was shocked and appalled--and even more surprised that we had been allowed to get our own all those years.

One time driving to Tulia to go to El Camino, I remember PaPa teasing Nonnie about her driving. I believe he even counted the number of cars that passed her. She told him that they were in Swisher County and she could not go her usual speed.

We have definitely been blessed!
