What were your favourites?
My all-time favorite meal includes the following:
- Turkey and gravy
- Dressing and cranberry sauce
- Macaroni pie
- Green beans
- Sliced tomatoes
- Pineapple Coconut Cake
- And, the very best Banana Pudding on the planet!
Would you still like them today? If not why not?
YES! I would give just about anything to be back at Granny’s house eating this meal with her again! Unfortunately, my granny passed away in March 2010. Also, I am over a thousand miles away from my family home.
Was your favourite served as a normal meal or only on special or rare occasions?
It was for special occasions only. Those occasions were Thanksgiving and Christmas. There was never any question from year-to-year where we would spend those holidays. They were always spent at Granny Gunter’s house. She was my daddy’s mama. It is a tradition that I will always treasure.
Did your mother enjoy cooking?
I never got the impression that she enjoyed it. It was just something that needed to be done, so she did it. I have always loved to cook. I guess I got that from my granny.
Did you serve the same favourite to your own children? If so, did it become his/her favourite as well?
Yes, I have cooked this same meal for my children. I don’t know that the entire meal was a favorite of any of our children, but each one had their favorite parts.
