Greek mothers as always cannot leave their children no matter how old they are (30 going to 31) and for them they will always be 7 and in need for mothers care. I am sure that all of you have seen the movie “My big fat Greek wedding” so I don’t need to explain anything more.

My mother is more or less the same, even if I am 10+ years in UK she still tries to find an opportunity to send me something that I can eat… Lately after a lot of fights she has settled in sending just Jam’s, lots of them.

Even if still I have to admit I don’t eat much of them in the morning (my brother does) they are really nice and tasty.  I always remember her fighting with my father whether it’s better to melt the fruits to create marmalades or eat them as they are.
