Sally Capotosto

I grew up in a nursing home! Well, back in the 50's nursing homes were more like boarding houses, with every level of care given. Turin only had about 98 people living there, but had a 3 room school that I attended until 6th grade. (For those who don't know... that means one teacher taught 3 grades and one row was a grade.) We got dial telephones in 1968! "Hello, Linda? Connect me to Nyda, please." It was the perfect place to grow up. I wasn't allowed to cook when I was younger. Until one day, when I was 18, the cook quit and Mom turned to me and said "get in there and cook dinner!" Talk about trial by fire! Thankfully our other cook taught me what to do. Its actually easier to cook for 40 people. The hardest part is timing everything to be ready at 11:30 for serving. (Thank you, Nyda Gleason!)
