Today I popped into an after school Slice of Life blogging group hosted by Cathy Mere. I was excited and curious to see what students were blogging about. Honestly I was looking for a little inspiration for tonight's writing. The students were chattering and eating a snack. Although I did gather many ideas and bits of inspiration, it was the snack that inspired my writing tonight. The snack was Nilla wafers. They remind me of my grandma Jean.
I loved Nilla wafers when I was a child. My grandma always had them in her cupboard when we went to visit. I remember laying on a blanket in her living room, eating Nilla wafers and pretending that I was having a picnic. My grandma always had a snack for us when we would visit. Of all the snacks I loved the Nilla wafers the most. It's amazing how the taste of a food can bring back such vivid memories. This is a happy memory!
