    Family Food!

    What were your favorite foods when you were growing up? Or, what are your kids favorite foods that you make!

    Later this month my family is getting together. I am going to recreate what Mom made for us.

    Spaghetti and meatballs
    Pork Chops and rice casserole with corn bread
    Oven baked chicken
    Sage Burgers

    I will also throw in a few of the holiday meals favorites and fresh breads.

    Southern style baked macaroni and cheese made by my grandmother. It's still one of my favorites.

    My mom didn't cook when I was growing up...not cook cook anyway. Most everything came out of a box, but I *loved* when she made SOS.

    As far as my kids' favorite foods, my one year old will eat anything and my three year old will eat nothing. They meet in the middle when we have king crab though and then they can't eat it fast enough.

    Mom wasn't/isn't big on cooking. Still, I loved her Hawaiian Chicken, and we all still ask her to make it when we're having a get-together. She would also take broccoli, cauliflower, black olives, and sometimes carrots, cut them into bite sized pieces, and marinade them at least overnight in Italian salad dressing. The only other thing was corn casserole made with crackers.

    My daughter loves my Dijon Caper Chicken. Hubby loves everything I cook. LOL

    Sunday dinner. Fresh veggies and either fried chicken or roast with homemade rolls. We grew the veggies so they were straight out of the garden or frozen/canned fresh. Same goes for the beef.

    Let me see, some of my favorites from my youth:

    Blueberry torte,
    Porkchops in Mushroom gravy,
    Tuna casserole,
    Potato soup with dumplings,
    Rice pudding,
    Grilled bratwurst,
    Fresh strawberries on "Bisquick" biscuits with whipped cream.

    My sister just emailed me and reminded me about Mom's Ham Ballls.

    A mix of ground ham, ground pork and ground beef mixed with buttermilk, eggs and graham crackers. There is a sweet glaze that goes over them.

    Some of the meals from my youth:

    "Strings & Mud" -- hamburger stroganoff made with cream of mushroom soup
    Golden Meatball Casserole: this was my birthday dinner request for years... Velveeta, rice, carrots, meatballs...
    Spaghetti; 'nuff said.
    Chili


    Does it show that we ate on a budget? LOL
