Some of my favorite childhood memories with my family and cousins centered around food. Summer meals with salmon cooked in the dishwasher, concord grape pie, yellow jackets and garter snakes (okay we didn’t eat those last two items).
Going into the garage and looking at Uncle David’s wine making attempts…all the tubes and fermenting cherries and jars and the fruity smell.
Crab dinners and deciding whether to put blue cheese or ranch or thousand island or cocktail sauce on the pile of crab you’d picked through.
Sitting on the back porch and waiting for a hummingbird to come to the feeder while the adults talked about everything (I don’t remember what they talked about, it wasn’t interesting to me. But BOY did they talk ALOT!)
Drinking ice tea. Picking raspberries and vegetables from the garden out back.
What are your food memories of our family?
