Associating people with food, sadness with Lemon Pie, pregnancy with strawberry cake…And Qatar, Saudi Arabia…

“Have you ever found yourself associating people with the food they bring to gatherings?

Like Rudy, he’s banana pudding with real whipped cream and Nilla Wafers.

Or J is spinach/artichoke dip, or basil, cheese torta (a freaking work of art) and cherry crisp.

Wein is sausage biscuit/meatball thingys, and that’s cool because she’s a vegetarian but she thinks about what other people like first.

M and I equally divide being the queso, and veggie/fruit trays (she has 2.75 kids, I’m just not a great cook or planner). Another friend is black bean and corn salsa.

‎Regret Regret Ya Allah U knows Better ♥

I’m giving this cake a lot of thought, and I think I can trace the inspiration back to a book I read about a year ago called, The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender.

It’s about a young girl who can taste the emotions and feelings of anyone who has prepared her food.

This ability begins on her 9th birthday when her mother bakes her a lemon cake filled with particular sadness.
