Who taught you to love food?
A Simple Life in Simpler Times
Granny made everything from scratch and would start cooking breakfast as soon as she got up in the morning. Eggs, bacon, biscuits, and gravy. Oh the smell coming from her kitchen I can still remember to this day, even though she left us some 20 years ago.
She grew all her own vegetables, raised her own chickens, and harvested her own honey. We used to go out by the side of the road and pick wild blackberries for her to make pie with.
She had no recipes in her kitchen, but I did ask her to tell me how to make her delicious chicken and dumplings one day...I still have the scribbled down 'recipe' today. She told me "get a big fat chicken and cook it on the stove all day"...
I have the salt and pepper shakers she had in her kitchen in my kitchen now, and every time I'm at the stove and look over at them, I think of her and the wonderful things she did in the kitchen. I hope she would be proud of me!
