Michelle Van Loon-episode 124
Good friend, Michelle Van Loon, joins me on the podcast sitting across from me at my kitchen table. Nice having her on my home turf and not via Skype!
It was a bit of a Millrose program as we went from topic to topic. Michelle and her friend Amanda Cleary Eastep founded a wonderful blog called The Perennial Gen which addresses the audience of those in midlife and beyond. It is a worthy blog to read. We also mentioned Michelle’s new book, to be released July 3, 2018, but can be pre-ordered, titled Born to Wander.
On the heels of The Perennial Gen we addressed the topic of end of life issues and why they are difficult to discuss. Then related to that, we talked about legacy creation and what that might look like. Michelle and I began talking about telling stories and passing on legacy through recipes. Check out Michelle’s blog. I think she has posted a couple of recipes just for the Faith Conversations listening audience. And check out her book Moments and Days which has a section of recipes in the back of the book.
I gave a recipe from my childhood on the podcast. So you don’t have to re-listen to get the recipe, here it is.
1 16oz box of macaroni noodles
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
Cook the macaroni noodles to your likeness and drain. Open both cans of condensed soup (don’t add water, just use the condensed, thick soup), stir together with the noodles. Sprinkle with Paprika for color, or some red pepper for a little zing/spice. Serve with some soft French or Italian bread.
It is a carb bomb, but a good one that was the comfort food of my childhood!
