Today Millie and I made a little trip over to mema’s kitchen…boy did we have fun with our cooking lesson. My favorite memories of living with my grandmother were sewing, cooking, attending church Sunday morning & night and each wednesday for choir practice! Yes, for those of you who did not know this, I was in the choir at mema’s little ol country church! Oh how I truly miss the good ol days!!! Anyhow, I have always wanted to learn how to make her biscuits, and today I finally learned. I have wanted to make them many a time with country ham or fried steak & gravy so many times and not known how. It just wasn’t the kind of thing I could just call her up on and get over the phone. It is a skill that takes practice and lots of experience! Seeing her prepare them in person was a memory I will have forever. I ate 2 of them standing in her kitchen afterwards with 2 pieces of country ham for a taste sampling. MMMM were they good. Here are some pictures from our time in MAWS kitchen!! I told her I was going to get her a cooking show on the food network! She just laughed and said she was too camera shy for that sort of thing! 🙂
