Yesterday, Rosemary mentioned I could even post pictures of breakfast. Ta-da!
This was breakfast last Friday when I was home visiting my mother. My sisters were there, too, so Mom made Swedish rosettes. I understand there's a device for them that looks like a rose, hence Swedish rosettes. Mom makes them free-form, though. It's fried dough with powdered sugar on it. If you go to fairs or amusements parks, it tastes like funnel cakes, but better.
Other mornings, it was cocoa and toast, or apple crunch. Mom made that for me for dessert, and I ate the leftovers for breakfast the next couple days. It has to be heated in the microwave so the milk poured over the apples is all buttery. Mmmm.
But, the best food surprise was corn pudding. Other people talk about corn pudding made with Jiffy mix or crackers. My Mom and youngest sister, Christie, make it, though, as few others do. It's been over 25 years since we had it. It takes corn on the cob that's getting older, and it's run over this device at the risk of knuckles and fingernails.
Then, the corn is put in an enamel pan with just butter, salt and pepper and baked. It's a family food memory, and it's wonderful. Christie surprised us and made it. We had it twice when we were there. This is Christie, glowing when she first served it because Linda and I were so surprised and ecstatic.
Rosemary was right to ask about food. Sometimes, that's what brings back the best memories.
Food memories, anyone?
