For seven years of my young life, the ‘ham was my home. Framingham, MA, about 20 miles west of Boston, where a young Seth learned the ways of the world, driving around in his 4-door bright red GEO Metro, Tori Amos’s Under the Pink cooing on the stereo, a few friends to join him in pondering the ways of the world as they passed through the Dunkin Donuts drive through.
My favorite thing about ham is that it is the forgotten deli meat… I usually go straight to the turkey, or if I’m feeling crazy, the pastrami or corned beef, but I always like ham, even though I forget about it, and when I get a nice ham sandwich, I’m usually pretty happy.
My favorite thing about The Framingham is the mall.
My real favorite thing about Framingham is sitting in my parent’s living room, watching my nephews scream their faces off, drinking some Trader Joe’s wine, making fun of my siblings, going out for dinner with my parents, sleepovers with my best friend, chatting with my grandma, and going through my high school photo albums.
Speaking of Ham: I am currently making a spinach, ham and cheese quiche. It is in the oven and I am so sure that it is going to be incredible and that it will influence the quiche landscape for generations to come that I had to run straight to the computer and blog about it post haste.
I like blogs that have surveys, so here is the first Wind Beneath my Chicken Wings Survey:
Fill in the blank: Seth’s quiche is the ________ quiche ever made.
(a) most provocative
(b) least controversial
(c) most unexpectedly life-changing
(d) least litigious
(e) all of the above
I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
