As a winter storm moves through the midwest, my stomach can only ponder warm comfort food. You know mac and cheese, collard greens, Brussel sprouts and potatoes.  Then I think of Mamas Food Shop and it’s vintage interior with mix/matched chairs and retro lighting. Man, that is good food and certainly stood the test of time.  The last time I was there, say August 2003, I walked home after eating a side of green beans, when I had a severe case of Anaphylaxis.  Granted, I didn’t know I was allergic to green beans brought on my exercise.  Eat the beans, walk, and come close to stabbing yourself with an Epipen. Oh well, I would still eat their food any day just not those crisp, divine green beans.
