Home cooked meal


Recommended Posts

Soarking

Finally broke down today and decided to make a good home cooked meal from scratch.   Wanted to show my son what a Midwest Home Cooked meal tasted like.  Made old fashioned chicken noodle soup with dumplings.  EVERYTHING made from scratch including the noodles.

My son took one look at it and said it didn't look like the chicken noodle soup out of the can.  "OH REALLY" was my response.

But once he tried it he loved it.    I need to try and remember some more of those old recipes from long ago.

I was thinking about meat loaf or thick rich beef stew.

but the meat over here sucks.

Guess we took our moms home cooked meals for granted.   Now it's all about eating out.

I don't, Mine just made me some last week :)

Women today just cant cook like the old country girls could. My mom has taught my daughters pretty well but they will never cook at her level

You guys were lucky  - my mom would cook only on Sunday then leftovers rest of week  - I learned in self-defense

Still hate greasy food - maybe why I can't abide by the pork here.

I did made a damn good NYC style Cheesecake and 4 grain bread

cucs n onions with vinegar, sugar & water.

As a small child every meal in the summer included cucs & onions, fresh sliced tomatoes and corn on the cob, yes even breakfast!

winter meals features homemade canned beets and sweet pickles.

and every Sunday featured either a homemade, from fucking scratch, german chocolate cake or a minced meat pie.

 

I miss those days of being poor, not knowing it and surrounded by foods fresh from the fields.

That just happens to be my favorite food my mom cooked...

She would always make it for me when I came home on leave.

She made a large one so we could have meatloaf sandwiches for several days.

There must be a million ways to make it, because it always taste different when I try it somewhere else.

My wife's meatloaf comes pretty close, but she isn't consistent. Sometimes like mom made, other times, not so much.

Mom never worked outside the house - she cooked food from scratch too every day -  She was one of the best cooks and bakers I ever knew.  yup miss those days too     we made sauerkraut , apple  butter, pear butter, all kinds of preserves , every kind of vegetable  imaginable, wild game ,  wild fish,  home raised chickens, rabbits, turkeys, pigeons   we canned or froze every thing -  If anyone  wants it I can put down her pie crust recipe  - I never tasted a pie better than mom's

I have to give my wife credit. When we first started to live together, she told me she wasn't that good of a cook.

She only knew how to cook a few things that her mother had cooked.

I never tried to get her to cook western style meals as I was fine with the local cuisine.

I have to say, she never cooked a bad meal. Sure there were some things like Ampalaya (Bitter Gourd) that I just don't like. 

After 8 years, she has created her own style of cooking and if you saw me, you would know it's good.

Just about every meal she cooks starts with garlic, ginger, onions and assorted spices.

Today she made chicken curry and it was excellent.
