If you were coming to my house for dinner when I was a kid, you would have to come armed with straws, your own seasoning, and some plop-plop-fizz-fizz.
If mom couldn’t prepare it from a box, can, boil it in a bag, or add water, it didn’t get prepared. But on special occasions she would slave over her crockpot. She’d make her famous spaghetti sauce, apricot glazed ham, salad, and her lime green Jell-O. Yum…yum.
Mom’s famous spaghetti sauce ingredients:
1 can tomato paste
1 can tomato sauce
1 pound of the cheapest ground beef you can find
salt, pepper, and sugar
I pound canned ham
1 jar of apricot preserves
Make sure you slather the ham with the preserves before you put in the oven.
Lime Green Jell-O:
1 box of lime green Jell-O
Thousand Island Dressing
Make sure you wash the lettuce before you slather it with the dressing
Mom will always be remembered for her cooking ways. They are recipes that could put Martha Stewart to shame.
Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! I know I’m late in my well-wishings but I’ve worked all weekend. I’ve done close to 70 haircuts since Friday. So I’ve got zombie brains.
Hugs and chocolate,
