If you've never joined our daily Koffee Klatch then today is the perfect day to give it a try. This is a topic, question for game each day just for the pleasure of having some fun and maybe a laugh or two. The only rules are that we never use the 'P' (p a i n ...ssshhhh) word in our Koffee Klatch. So whether you are new to the forum or a long timer, please do join us today for some memory time.

Do you remember your grandmother’s cooking? Or maybe you went to visit an aunt who's cooking was memorable. But whoever it was in your life that left you with wonderful memories of delicious meals and fun, let's share about them. What was this person' specialty? What do you remember having when you visited?

My memories of my grandma on dads' side are very wonderful ones. She was widowed when I was very young so once I was over 10 I was allowed to stay with her for a week or more during the summer. She lived about 300 miles away in northern Idaho but some family member was often going that way and I would hitch a ride, or mom and dad would take me over. Grandma cooked very simple meals but one thing I do remember is when I arrived she always had fresh, homemade cinnamon rolls waiting. She must have made the the day before but she kept them in a small glass front china cabinet in her tiny house and that was the first thing I noticed...after hugging There was always a fancy plate in the china cabinet that help those delicious cinnamon rolls and they were like eating a piece of heaven. I don't remember so much about their exact flavor but rather that she had made them for the two of us. That's better than any flavor. wink

What special thing did your grandma or aunt or some special person in your past make that you remember fondly?

At first I thought you were asking what delicious things people in your life have made that are still a strong memory in your mind.  So, I'll answer that first--my grandparents had a farm and when my siblings and I would go over it seemed that Grandma had very little patience with us. It took until I had fibro to realize that my grandma probably had fibro too.  She had to pack eggs for sale in the basement, climb the stairs Big stairs, then housekeep, cook, and help tend acres of raspberries and then grandkids show up!  No wonder she was cranky!  But the thing she made that was heaven was fresh new potatoes and fresh green peas  in a heavenly cream sauce.  Yum!
But I also have to say that the special thing that a special person made for me was butterhorns.  My mom is exellent at baking and loves to make baked goods for people---she is still doing it at 90 years old.  Makes treats for the neighbors.  When I was about 10 she was perfecting the making of sweet rolls and would make butter horns, figure 8's with lemon and/or raspberry, and cake donuts with frostings and nuts!  Yummy!

My mom was a good cook, and what I remember most is her "pastachute," a delicious hamgurger-based Italian casserole. Not sure what gave it its distinct flavor. Funny that's what I remember most, since I haven't eaten meat for at least 10 years! She really cared about making us a variety of dishes, and trying to make them healthy, and setting a nice table, too. She had such energy!

My step-grandmother on my dad's side made great "Karo Nut Pie", which is my favorite food in the world, only I call it pecan pie. I'm not sure if she knew I liked it so much, since I didn't see her more than a few times.

My Aunt would make home made fried bread dough on her coal stove....another favorite was toast made on the
burners of the coal stove. It was better than anything made today.
