I got pretty melancholy making these to take to work. The first time I had these was almost 30 years ago. My mom had a new recipe to try, so she got up early and made these to take to work for our monthly food day. Today I did the same (well made them the night before), but thought of her many hours standing in the kitchen at the stove making good things for us.
