I spent the week organizing all of Weenie's recipes, which was quite tedious. I think she has more dessert recipes than anything! Is it just me or do you gravitate to the kitchen table to do everything too?
My categories consist of…
Sauces, Relishes, Preserves
Dinners - Casseroles, Meats, Poultry, Seafoods
What recipes are you looking forward to the most? I have so many wonderful memories of my grandmother in the kitchen. When it was time for everyone to eat, we dished up right from the stove. Weenie would sit in her side chair and just watch everyone while she sipped a glass of pinot grigio. We would all sit around the table and some would just dig in. Weenie would say, “Now wait for the prayer.” My Uncle Ed always joked, “We’re just making sure the food’s worth prayer for.” It was always delicious.
This week, we made chicken spaghetti. We weren’t really sure what we were getting into. Weenie’s handwriting is hard to read. And I remember when I tried to get recipes from her in the past, she would just say, “Do it to taste!” Like she never measured anything in her life. But I will say, this recipe turned out quite well. Of course, I feel like all my kids eat is macaroni or chicken nuggets. So Chris and I ate chicken spaghetti all week. Not sure this project will be good for our waistlines! Ha! Let me know if you enjoyed the recipe as much as we did!
