Today, as many of us are doing, I'm cooking Christmas dinner. Though there are many things special about that endeavor, what makes for a memorable experience for me is that I am using my Mom's old cookbook that she used religiously every Sunday morning for Sunday dinner and, as I am doing today, for Christmas dinner, and every date in between.
The pages are brown around the edges and some of the binding is failing. Some of the recipes Mom had written by hand. Today, I use the dog-eared favorite to make Squash Casserole, Green Bean Casserole and Candied Yams. Sound like a Southern cook? Yes, Ma'am.
If anyone is interested in the recipes, I'll be glad to share here on the blog.
Happiest of Holidays and the Best of '09.
