I had forgotten how it feels to gaze at the Milky Way and get lost in our thoughts; making wishes for every shooting star we see.

I had forgotten how to make a cake batter with a wooden spoon; how to knead without a dough hook; how to bake without a timer, and how to eat with our fingers.

I had forgotten how he makes me smile for no reason other than just being him. And how cold it gets when hours are spent sitting on the steps overlooking the garden, talking about anything – everything, really – with a beer or two and a slice of cake; that’s what we do.

We chop and we mix. We fold and we whisk. And when it’s all over and our kitchen looks like a flour storage unit and the sink wishes it never existed, we gather around a table.

A table made of upside-down wooden pallets and my favourite tablecloth. The one with embroidered flowers that my great grand-mother cross-stitched years ago now. We have mismatched plates and glasses. And really, that’s fine. More than fine, in fact.

Because, the very essence of it all hides behind every dessert you’ll put on that table. It’s about much more than food. So much more. Always, and for ever, more.
