Like my family
Monday, September 21, 2020
My mother was the second oldest of 12 children and the oldest daughter. So by default she learn to cook for her family of 14. I recall going to my grandma's house and there was always something on the stove. They always expected one of the children with grandchildren to show up at any time.
I learned to cook from my mom and her quantity of portions per recipe took me years to widdle back. There were no recipe cards, it was all done from memory.
I found this picture on the internet and it made me giggle. Though my grandma didn't eat much meat, this was probably accurate for the portion sizes she prepared.
