A long time ago, I visited my “Godmother” Aunt Delores in Lincoln, Nebraska, during a time that she was being treated for breast cancer.I was a young woman and knew that my aunt was ill, yet she still shared her joyful smile and calm spirit.
Aunt Delores prepared a simple supper for us: taco salad. It was delicious, and she gladly shared the recipe with me, verbally. This lovely woman died way too young many years ago, and I am grateful for her life and the grace that she lived. Her four children, my cousins, share her spirit!
Every summer I serve her taco salad multiple times and always think of her. Thank you, Aunt Delores, for all that you taught me, and all who were fortunate to know you!
