G is for Grandma's Cooking

Hey everyone- unfortunately, Faith's still under the weather. But she doesn't want to give up on the A-Z Challenge just yet, so she's dictating this post through her momma. A/K/A Jaybird. Please excuse any mistakes, as clearly they will be all mine.

G is for Grandma's cooking. There is just something about the way my Grandma cooks that makes everything taste better. It doesn't matter what it is, from something as simple as scrambled eggs and grits, to a more complex and complicated dish, it always tastes better when Grandma cooks it.

Ironically, G'ma is something of a menace in the kitchen. She leaves cabinet doors open and the counters a total disaster. She also uses almost every single pot and pan we have. But that's just how she rolls. Even though it blows my mind that she can work in such conditions, she clearly operates best in chaos, because no one produces a better end result.

It's hard for me to narrow down my favorite Grandma recipe, they are all SOOO good. I want to record one here for you, but it's kind of hard. Because oh yeah, guess what? She never writes down a recipe either! You have to just watch and learn. That's the only way to figure it out. Plus, she modifies as she goes along so it's never quite the same twice.

No matter what she's cooking or what kind of mess she's creating, I love being in the kitchen with my Grandma. She's the best.

Hope to feel better and be back to posting again myself real soon!! -Faith

    1. You are 100% right. My grandma had four kids and is one hundred percent Italian. She doesn't know what it is like to cook, or really live calmly! Thank you, I am feeling a lot better!!

  3. It's always reassuring to hear about someone else who loves to create in chaos. Hope you feel better soon. :-)

    1. Hahaha! That is just how some people like my grandma create and work best in. I know that my grandma just wouldn't feel right if everything was "normal" !! I appreciate it, today is the first day that my health is improving!!

  4. You're mom did a good job! Tell her I could use a secretary too. My grandma could get me to eat vegetable soup...there wasn't anything she couldn't cook!

    You and your grandma are beautiful ladies. :)

    1. I will tell her! At one point in her life, my mom actually was a secretary and a very good one. There is not one thing that my grandmother has made that I have not enjoyed!! Thank you so much! My mom did make a little typo there because that picture is from my 6th grade graduation, but she is still a pretty good secretary. ;-)
