I will admit I'm not a big fan but....I think it might be fun to try roasted purple potato chips.

Hi Mary

My Uncle was known for his tasty blue tatters, and they grew big.
Seemed to have better taste esp. when freshly dug
He supplied us year round and also he packed carrots in sawdust to keep them over winter, carrots are a must with potatoes.
Turnips wrapped in newspaper in root cellar and the moonshine...oppps that was medicinal.
In exchange he received Lobster and we hit the tidal flats for mature cohougs....mmmmmmmmmmm the ultimate clam chowder served with bread from our wood stove.

Ok... funny how thoughts of a special food bring back memories

:D

So true, about food memories. Everytime I make biscuits, I remember my grandma who made biscuits for my grandpa everyday from scratch....with lard. I love biscuits and make them as well. I could always count on a wonderful big dinner at her house on Sundays with biscuits and sweet tea on the table.....and often, fried chicken or some kind of chicken.

BTW, there is definitely a difference between sweet tea and sweetened tea. We southern girls know how to make sweet tea.

Boil the water, throw the tea bags in for 8 minutes with a lid on, remove the bags, put in at least a cup of sugar. Stir until dissolved, then add the water to dilute. Serve over huge glass of ice or chill first,

Love that stuff!
Vicki

PS Never squeeze the bags or it makes the tea bitter.

One of my favourite memories with food is at Christmas.

The smell of turkey basting away in the oven, stuffing, veggies bubbling away on the stove, with a fresh hot apple pie (cinnamon and sugar and apples) on the table...all those warm smells coming from a warm kitchen...

WHERE IS THAT DROOL EMOTICON??????????? :D

Mary, one of the things they suggest when showing your home is to bake an apple pie or burn one of those candles that smell like apple pie. It gives your home a wonderful, welcoming smell.....supposedly, a psychological benefit.

Yum, apple pie. Mrs. Smith make a wonderful (cheating) one that has a cream cheese packet you put on the pie afterward; icing by Cinnabon. It is fabulous. Great to keep one in the freezer for unexpected company. One of the grocery stores around here will have two for one pies on sale. I usually by about 6-8 to keep on hand for an emergency.

Regards,
Vicki
