Q & A

I have oficially become one of THOSE moms. (Please don’t take offense). But the kind that takes food when she goes to visit her kids!  Think “Everybody Loves Raymond.”  We are going to Orlando Friday and the kids insisted they didn’t need anything, but, I never visit empty-handed, even if it is my son and his wife.  So, I decided to make his favorite, dish, stuffed cabbage, and take it to them.  Didn’t tell them, but they will love it.

Do any of you take food as “gifts” when you visit your children.  God, I feel old!!

    • Robin, I guess I am officially one of those mom’s too. My daughter moved out 2 years ago. She is over for dinner at least 3 times a week. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I still buy her favorite foods to cook. Cabbage being one of her favorites also.
      Once the kids are grown and gone, I think, food is still the staple in our relationships where we know we can comfort them just as we did when they were little ones.

    • If my Mom ever showed up at my house with no food, I’d cry...seriously.  I’ve come to expect it, and I know I’ll do the same for mine.

    • I loved it when my mom did that. Even if I said I didn’t need anything, it still made me feel loved.

      Now I do it for her when I visit! I go to Costco and buy stuff she wouldn’t dream of spending money on for herself. Last time I made her a rack of lamb! She was thrilled.

    • My first thought is how the car is going to smell while/after stuffed cabbage has ridden in it...whew!

      I think taking food is awesome.  I suspect i won’t ever be one of THOSE Moms because i don’t really cook much now.  I’d be more inclined to take them out to dinner when i get there!  LOL

    • When my mom was alive, she didn’t visit too often because she didn’t like to drive. But at her house when I would go home, she would normally be making something fabulous. That woman could cook!

    • Thank you very much, Annie!  That makes 2 people who think that.  My hubby is the other.

      Daphne, I’m not going to COOK the cabbage.  It will be in a pot over night in the fridge, then put in the car last thing. The pot will be nice and COLD.  We cook it when we get there!

      Thanks, everyone for your input!

    • There is absolutely nothing wrong in doing this for your kids! I always make it a pratice to cook my son’s favorite meals when he comes home to visit.  There is nothing like Mom’s cooking! estatic

    • I don’t take food, but when I get there, we go to the grocery store (with MY checkbook) and shop and then go back to their house and cook.

    • I wish my mom would be able to make food for me still.  But her health does not allow it.  My son is only 12 years old, so it will be awhile, but yes I would bring him food, and I am sure he would expect me to.
