AND OTHER FAMILY TRADITIONS……
I always remember Sunday supper at home, Nana’s or Grandma Dean’s house. We only saw Grandma Dean when we went to Pennsylvania, but, the entire family would be there. Dinner at home usually consisted of pot roast, mashed potatoes and carrots and dinner rolls. Sometimes, just sometimes, my dad would make fried chicken. We have tried to do traditional Sunday British fare as well, making Yorkshire Pudding, which is not a pudding at all. It is more of a batter that puffs up in a muffin pan, and in the center comes out almost hollow, with a nice natural place for gravy!
Families each have their own traditions. Church, supper together, Sunday drives and watching football if is is that season!
Below is a photo of a holiday dinner at Nana and Papa’s house. It looks to be about 1969. Not all of us were present at the table for the photo. Looks like butterbeans and turkey!
