Judy and I ate supper with my little momma this afternoon. It was her standard meal, one which I ate many times over the years I’ve been blessed with her. It was a great meal that always filled me up and yet left me wanting to push in just one more bite of everything.

Judy loves mom’s pinto beans, or as she says it “beantos!” Another thing Judy likes with her “beantos” is chocolate cake! Yes, it is good, I’ve been forced to try it, but it was not something I have to have, but to her it is the dessert taste she craves. So tonight, after waiting for the beans to cook all day, she gave in to the “chocolate force” and enjoyed herself.

There is nothing better than a good tender beef roast, with carrots, potatoes, and onions all cooked up in the same beef juices! Yes, there is something green, kind of, it’s in the slaw, and man does the juice from the slaw make cornbread taste even better.

I have been cutting back on my eating for the past two weeks, so tonight I splurged and loaded my plate. When it was all over, I had a hard time deciding between one more bite of the hominy, the beans, the slaw, or the cornbread…so, I ate a little more of each!

Thanks mom for the great meal and love and warmth I’m feeling inside right now.

Now that's what I call good home cooking! I love the idea that one day my own grown kids might also bring their family round every week to share a meal together. Siting across a table with family is what the good life is all about, don't you think?

(Your momma rocks!)

That all looks wonderful, just like the home cookin' put out by my late grandmother and mother. Nothin' like good home cookin'.
