Rough Childhood

Recommended Posts

I had a rough childhood.  Mom would read recipes for us at suppertime, since we had no food.  

 

My little brother nearly starved to death before they figured out he was hard of hearing.

My Mother learned to cook from her Mother 

When the food is smoking its cooking when it's black it's done

I got something I liked if I reduced a stock until the smoke alarm went off.

When I was cooking at the Fire Station  the smoke alarm  was just outside the kitchen doorway  

My crew knew when the smoke alarm went off the food was on the table 

The three rules for dinner were:

Make a lot 

Make it hot 

Serve it late

Well, my Mama could make a decent meal out of an old boot.  My parents set up housekeeping during the Depression and could stretch nothing into something fine.  When I married I really didn't know how to cook, but I knew how food should taste, and just went from there.  I can cut up a chicken.  My pot roast (finally) is almost as good as my mother-in-law's.  Just take a look at me & Petey & you know I can cook.  Meat & two, every day.

I always wondered why my ex-wife hadn't met my brother instead. They both rely on the smoke alarm to tell them when their food is done.
