Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

We do take this kind of cooking for granted these days, but I well remember a time when spaghetti meant Chef-Boy-R-D.

Me too, Hattie!

I find this poignant - what is point of thanking people when they can no longer hear you?

That said, I appreciate your writing and the thoughts you graciously share with us all.

Dear ET: I understand what you're saying. For me I think it's because I know that being grateful changes *me*, even when the person to whom it's expressed can't hear me any more. Thanks for your kind words about the blog!

I read an interview in which she said she thanked God every day that she'd found him. A love story with food, and with him. I too learned so much from her.
