I could just picture the MC's mother nodding and smiling in heaven, at the end of your story... good job and excellent descriptions!
And the part about the fried pies in a Tupperware container REALLY brought back sweet memories for me.
My grandmother worked for days before every July 4th, making fried pies for the family. Not only did she store them in the Tupperware, but there is also a special old tupperware bowl that she used to cut out the circles of dough (that has been passed down to me!). :-)
My grandmother is much like the woman talked about in this story. She likes to show her love and affection through cooking and baking.

This was a well written piece. I really appreciate you sharing these memories with all of us. Keep up the good writing! :)
