Chicken with Home made Noodles. We used to eat it over mashed potatoes. I still make it, but I have eliminated the mashed potatoes. Yummy!

my mother was not a cook by any stretch of the imagination.........but my grandma was wonderful.........my favorite was her "brined" fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and homemade pie on Sundays.........she would soak the chicken( that she had plucked herself the day before---not a pretty sight believe me) early in the morning in salt water and we'd go to Mass and then when we got home she would take off her hat or veil (women back then wore something on their heads for mass---yeah, I know) and when we arrived home she would change into a comfortable housedress and homemade aprons..............those were the best meals ever.........and when they tell you to imagine yourself in a safe place it's always at my Grandma's

Shepherd's Pie, (our version), Texas-style pork ribs and sauerkraut, but my favorite food memory is smoked oysters and Saltine crackers with my Dad. We were a family of swimmers/divers and went swimming EVERY Friday and Saturday at the Y and this was our snack that would keep Mom OUT of the kitchen

Such a coincidence! My dad and I used to snack on the same thing. No one else in the family would eat them, and they remain one of my favorite comfort foods. I've passed this on to my daughter, but son and hubby can't even be in the same room!

I have fond memories of my grandma's fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy...her apple pie...little individual egg custards...chicken a la king...pot roast and gravy...and green jello with pears in it.

My mom's spare ribs in sauerkraut, and the yorkshire pudding she made with pot roast are two things I really miss, in addition to all the wonderful Christmas cookies she made.

Growing up in Denver, and walking the 3 blocks to school and home for lunch, meant that we many days would be walking through 2 ft snowdrifts. The best food memories for me is the pot of either potato or tomato soup that we knew would be waiting when got home for lunch.

My dad's and Grandma's Prime Rib and Yorkshire pudding every Christmas! The best!
Also my dads spagetti, it was just the Lawyrs dry sauce mixture in a package made with ground beef but he made it somehow taste oh so yummy!
My best friends grandmother's stuffed grape leaves with lamb, I can make a good grape leaf but I could never get it like hers....oh well never give up they say....I'll enjoy all the failed attempts!
