When it’s not probable to be with them we like to spend a good apportionment of my day meditative of family and removing in hold by telephone.

I came opposite an “oldie-but-goodie” that, really, is improved than many of a new ones. And it’s easy. Our families generally got together for holiday dishes – Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving. All of my aunts were good cooks, though many did not follow created recipes. My Dad’s sister Ona was an difference and my niece Rhonda has upheld on to a rest of us Aunt Ona’s honeyed potato cake recipe. She called it cake and that’s what it tastes like – but a crust. It’s some-more like a stew to be served as a side plate alongside a turkey. It’s a keeper.
