COOKING WITH FAMILY
When the terms of the will were read aloud in the stuffy lawyer’s office we discovered Aunt Sally still tortured us even in death. To verify I asked, “So this is a cook off for the inheritance? Is that what you’re trying to say?”
On Thursday Aunt Sally’s personal chef would judge.
We worked tirelessly to come up with a winning recipe. Thursday arrived. The chef tasted each dish showing no expression.
“This dish, Grave Rewards, wins. Full flavored, tender with an intriguing taste I can’t quite identify.”
The winner claiming the inheritance refused to reveal the secret.
Sour in life but sweet in the pot Aunt Sally had helped me win. Sweet revenge.
