My mom would make this about once a month and for my dad's birthday:
- Home made fried chicken
- Biscuits from scratch with butter, and strawberry jam
- Broccoli with cheese
- Mashed potatoes with gravy made from the chicken drippings
- Sweet ice tea
- Banana pudding with waffers
That was it, simple, delicious and it tasted like home. How I can match that for my kids it as question I may never answer but I do make a delicious pasta sauce from scratch that leaves them hungry for more. But I am not sure if they will remember it the same way that I remember that treat.
My grandma used to make the best Shepard's Pie ever. I was so giddy everytime I knew she was making it.
Sorry, I guess I just felt sentimental today.
