Coming home from school everyday, I expected to have something to eat right away. My grandfather never disappointed me - tinula (chicken soup), bindoongoo (better experienced than described, trust me), taboongao (opo squash soup with atsuete powder and pork) the list goes on! Hence the image of the pot which is always full of food and full of memories.
And just because the location has changed - Portland, OR and instead of Hawaii - the full pot policy has not. It is embedded deep in my psyche. When we go backpacking, where we try to cut down on as much weight as possible, I make sure Matt always carries at least 5 pounds extra of food. Shh, don't tell him. Because no matter where you are, especially if you're not at HOME, food is important! Check back next week for further developments on the HOME Series.
