TRADITION
metahara
One day after school a young girl noticed that her mother was cutting off the ends of a pot roast before putting it in the oven to cook for dinner. She had seen her mother do this many times before. This time she asked, "Why do you cut the ends off?" and her mother replied, "I don't know. It’s what my mom always did. Why don't you ask your Grandma?"
So the young girl called her grandmother and asked, "Grandma why do you cut the ends off the pot roast before cooking it?" Her grandmother replied, "I don't know. That's just the way my mother always cooked it. Why don't you ask her?". Undeterred, the girl called her great grandmother, who was living in a nursing home and asked her the same question, "Why did you cut the ends off the pot roast before cooking it?" Her great grand mother replied, "When I was first married we had a very small oven, and the pot roast didn't fit in the oven unless I cut the ends off." -- take time to reevaluate your traditions; change can be good for you and your family.
