There would be no time to eat it all before we went on vacation, and what was left would just go rotten sitting in the refrigerator for the week or two that we were gone.
When I was a kid, I remember feeling somewhat shortchanged by the whole Pepperidge Farms thing. But, eventually, I came to see that it added a special wrinkle to an already special day. Even now, it brings a smile to my face and makes a fun story to tell.
And thanks for the memory, Mom!
