MEMORIES OF YESTERDAY…

My brother And I… CHEERS ๐Ÿฅ‚

GRANDMA ๐Ÿ‘ต COOKING…

One of my fondest and favorite memories of my childhood days … is my grandma’s cooking…

My brother and I were very fortunate to live most of my childhood with grandma…

We were a very big family … my grandma mothered ten children including my dad…

So she was always in the kitchen fixing something delicious to feed her flock… whenever I see her in the kitchen I become very anxious and impatient for whatever she was fixing to eat…

As I get older I used to find the excuse of trying to help although I always seem to get in her way…. I just wanted to see what she was making…

Every meal grandma makes was so scrumptiously delicious… so every meal time was a great pleasure for me and my siblings..

I always admire her for her dedication to feed us … and holidays was a treat … she would prepare her most favorite recipes and she would invite all of her grown kids and family over…

We would all sit in groups talking and mingling and just enjoying each other company..

And when it’s time to eat everyone would eagerly gather at the table and dive in to a most appetizing and enjoyable meal… every one commenting on her different recipes and complimenting her on just how good it all is..

She would just shrug her shoulders and waved them off as if it was nothing special…and to her it probably was not.. it just comes natural to her..

But..

To me and everyone at that dining table…

It was a thrill just to be there to partake and enjoy that most delicious meal prepared so graciously..

And to top it off .. she would have the most tastiest dessert..that of course she baked herself..

Christmas Dinner was always a nine meal course.. including our famous Christmas drink “The Sorrel “…

She always makes two versions..one for the adults.. with rum or wine..

And one for the kids.. without..

How I miss my grandma.. and the great cook she was… I crave her meals right now….she was definitely my fondest memory…she really makes my childhood memorable with her talented cooking…

  1. This post brings back memories that people can just smell Nita. And you were so right, meals were always plate covering with side dishes that guaranteed you left the table with a full stomach. I called them TV dinners cause thatโ€™s what you did after dinner is watched tv!๐Ÿ˜
