The Alzheimer’s Walk

My mother often repeated a phrase that went something like this: "You can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar." Put otherwise, friendliness and kindness will get you further than anger or demand. The older I get, the more I realize the universality of my mother’s wisdom.

I spent the next few days browsing each cheese sauce recipe I could find. I sought to understand the ingredients. What was unique in the different varieties? What did they have in common? Would I bake my Mac? How about pan fried? There was some serious debate. After contemplating the secret of the ooze, I finally decided on pan fried Ma
