My mom and her former neighbour still continue to cook together. My mom will (have my father) drive to Brampton and the two friends will spend the afternoon in the kitchen baking cookies, making tomato sauce from scratch (using bushels of tomatoes), breading chicken fillets or pickling tomatoes.
Her friend's husband maintains a beautiful vegetable garden, roasts his own eggplants and grinds his own sausages. I was fortunate enough to get my hands on some of those sausages and used them in a great pasta dish with roasted vegetables. I was quite impressed with myself since Italian isn't exactly my specialty.
