Getting to Know Us
What fun. I'd considered asking for foods we would never eat together but I think we covered that too. Some of my DH's family would never drink milk when eating fish because it would kill you. Seems that a relative did this one time and then had a heart attack. This just made me think of another cause and effect story my neighbor told me. The newly married daughter decided to cook ham and beans. She wanted to make it just like her mother did so she cut the big ham shank bone in half. She was curious why her moth did this and asked her. Mother said she did it because Grandmother did it. Grandmother said they would have to go ask Great-grandmother who said it was because the bone was too big to fit into the pot. *VBS*
What was your big cooking or eating goof?
When I was in high school, I decided to do a good deed and make my neighbor a chocolate cake. I produced a pretty good looking round layer cake with chocolate frosting and was feeling very proud. When I presented it, they insisted I have a piece with them. She got out a knife and cut, then tried again with another knife. I had lined the cake tins with wax paper and forgotten to remove it from the cake. I was so embarrassed but they were nice and said the cake was good anyway. Just had to peel off paper from each bite.
