Oh, I just remembered a few more favourites my Mom made that I miss.
- her light fruit cake - like no other fruit cake I have ever tasted.
- our family recipe "Christmas Salad" with marshmallows, apples, grapes, nuts, pineapple and a wonderful dressing that is cooked and then has whipped cream folded in.
- I loved her pies and her perfect pastry...the best part being she would always slice cheddar cheese onto the leftover pastry, seal it tight, make a couple of slits in the top and bake it with the pies. Oh, that was so tasty!
- Finally, my Dad just reminded me of the hash/goulash she made with ground beef - it was never the same twice (mushrooms when Dad wasn't home, frozen veggies of different kinds, etc.) but it was always delicious.
