BERNIECE HANSEN'S TEXAS SPAGHETTI
After my husband’s death I was overwhelmed with the generosity shared by my friends and neighbors. Along with sincere condolences, they shared wonderful food. One of those friends (Berniece) shared this dish for one of our meals. It was a perfect meal. I recently prepared this recipe for a family gathering. Along with the spaghetti we had salad, garlic bread followed with dessert. Yum! It was delicious.
(A little about Berniece....) Berniece and her husband, Leon, are thoughtful and generous friends who definitely understand personal loss and heartache. Several years ago they lost their little girl in a tragic accident. Gifting my family with a wonderful meal is one example of their kindness and caring. Another was when I needed a bale of straw for my outside manager scene; I asked Leon if he could spare one from his farm. He didn't hesitate, he brought me exactly what I needed right away. One spring they invited my grandchildren and me to their farm to see the baby lambs; and they invite anyone who cares to come out each year to witness as Leon demonstrates how farming was done in years past with his antique farm equipment..
As I stated earlier, they understand loss and heartache and they understand that life is filled with both good and bad - and that y
es, we need to celebrate the good when we can and be thankful for the people who support us and help us when we experience the bad. Friends - nothing can replace them!
