I enjoy the family dinners at any holiday time. I love to cook and love to see people enjoying the foods they love. I try to cook at one favorite
dish---for everyone. The only "in-law" is my son-in-law and I don't think of him that way, he's the son I never had.
We just polished off our Easter dinner, a day late due to their working on weekends and having Monday as their day off. Baked ham, mashed potatoes,
carrot salad, steamed broccoli, deviled eggs and carrot cake.
There aren't any big problems as long as I stick with my nuclear family but when the extended family gets included, it always turns crazy because
we've got some monumental complainers. I buy real butter from cows. I buy real cream from cows for my coffee. I buy real sugar for my coffee and
tea. I make my own bread from real, natural, organic ingredients. My cooking doesn't taste like fast food. Those who appreciate real, local food
enjoy my cooking and I enjoy preparing food for appreciative people.
I'm a Southern woman, trained to go to the kitchen at the first sign of tragedy or crisis. There is no situation which won't be improved by an apple
pie or a chocolate cake. I think that's in the Bible somewhere.
