A Childhood Memory


Cleaning out the refrigerator today I found two green peppers that needed to be eaten.  I pondered if I should use them in a meal or just cut them up so the kids could eat them.  Then, I remembered how my grandma would cut the tops off, clean them out, and fill them with water.  She would give us our green pepper “cups” and we would drink away.  Our favorite part was eating our “cup” when we were finished.  I loved when the green peppers would become ripe in their large garden so we could drink from them.  Today, I shared this memory with my children and they got to drink from their very own green pepper “cups.”
