I loved every single thing my mother cooked up during my childhood; I ate it all! The best was probably the homemade “Subway” sandwiches, where she cut open baguette bread, and I was offered a choice of different condiments to add including Turkey, Pepperoni, Vegetables, dressing, and so forth. YUUUUM!

My mom opened a lot of cans for our meals, as she had been raised out in the country and moved to the big city of Dallas in 1945. Therefore, anything she cooked from scratch was a treat! My first thought goes to mashed potatoes or pan fried potatoes. We always had some kind of potatoes for each meal. Then, white cream gravy, made with just white flour, corn oil, and milk, was usually served.

Yellow sweet cornbread with pinto beans was to die for!

After school, my brother and I would cook our own grilled cheese sandwiches in the oven. We never grilled them! I don’t know why not! We also enjoyed the little frozen chicken pot pies. My favorite part was the sauce on the crust. They could have left the green peas out at the time and the chicken gristle. Yuck!

Then, there was the canned spaghetti that mom would open and add fresh cooked ground hamburger meat to for our Italian nights! LOL!

I’ll have to say her fried chicken was always tasty. She only used flour, salt, and pepper for the coating, but she could cook it crispy and good.

My grandmother made the best chocolate cream pie on earth and I thought that’s what Thanksgiving Day was all about! She left me the recipe and when my 6 kids were young, I baked it just like grandma and everyone thought I was a great pastry chef! I couldn’t take credit, but to this day, I’ve never tasted a pie like it!

Just about everything was washed down with a big glass…or several glasses of iced tea with way too much sugar!

Thanks for asking me to take a trip down memory lane, as I am now a fruitarian and all that wonderful food is of the past. Most days. ; )

Mine has to be Turkey and mashed potatoes and gravy. I loved sitting at the little kid table and putting water on the seat of any of our cousins that got up to get seconds or thirds. haha.

Growing up, my favorite was Baked Sweet Potatoes. Open it up and add butter for a delicious side dish. Sweet Potatoe French Frys are not bad either.
