Desert Jewels (2013)
  • Lauren L. Gallow
There were always rules in our house. Most were unspoken, unless you didn’t follow them. Then there was a lot of speaking. There were a lot of rules surrounding dinner in particular. Mom would plan dinner and execute it, always making sure to please both of us, my stepdad Michael and me. He was a vegetarian for a period of time, and I remember vividly my mom preparing two separate meals, one for Michael and one for me. So mom made the dinners and I always had to set the table.
