Tonight I stopped at the local market and picked up a few things and found something that truly reminded me of my childhood. I found a jar of lupini. It is a bean that is placed in a salt solution. They are actually quite good (once you acquire a taste for them).

But the taste, the smell reminded me of my father. He would buy them at the corner Italian store; and at night when we watched TV, he would go get some and place them in a little bowl and he would sit in his big chair and we would sit around him and we would share them... boy how time passes by; and how quickly it comes flooding back... lupini.
