I had never heard of city chicken until I saw it on DC a couple of years ago. I guess it wasn't an East coast thing.

When I think of my mom's cooking, I think of her Armenian foods. My parents emigrated from Armenia in the 1920s. I grew up in a home where the food was mostly dishes my folks ate in the "old country". We spoke Armenian as much as English.

I don't think there is a single favorite. It would be different based on my mood at the moment. She did a great job of making lamejun (http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...icture4208.jpg), a dish my daughter and I have made as well. She also made a great meal of dolma and sarma. Stuffed veggies, cabbage and grape leaves cooked in broth and topped with yogurt. I'll have to get my sister to make some for me.

Yum! My stepmom makes a similar Greek Dish. Stuffed vine leaves, zucchini, potatoes and spinach leaves cooked in a tomato broth. Love it!

She also makes a boiled dumpling filled with 2 kinds of cheese, chopped mint and egg yolks cooked in chicken broth. I love those the most.
She said it's called Rafgiolis? Not sure how to spell it and I can't find a recipe for it anywhere!

there's just so many: pot roast, lob scaus, chicken parm, roast chicken and turkey, roast beef, london broil, beef and veggie soup, fried breaded fish, smelts, pork chops - breaded or grilled, danish ham, meatloaf, crepes, omeletes, all kinds of sandwiches... i can't even think of them all right now.

suffice it to say as the last of 6 kids, my mom never cooked a bad meal imo. my eldest brother might disagree, but by the time i came around, she was a pro.

my bro ended up marrying a woman who always thought it was a chore to have to cook, and he never learned to cook either to be fair. their poor kids were raised on crappy takeout.

i took it upon myself to keep my mom's (later) standards up, and married a woman who felt the same about her mom. we are very blessed.

a norwegian/north sea version of hash made with leftover shredded meats and fishes, with onions and potatoes and pickles mixed in. it's served with an fried egg on top, and often smoked fish and bread on the side.

it is!
and my mom's is the best.

she used to take whatever leftover meats or fishes we had, shred them, mix in a little can of corned beef, add par boiled potatoes, chopped pickles, and butter sweated potatoes, and combine it all together into a big, tasty, rib-stickin' glop.

Now I want to try it! I tried looking for a recipe on Google but the ones I found don't sound the same. Does she use spices?

i don't think so. norwegians don't use a lot of spices, save maybe s&p. they like very white food. it matches the environment, lol.

but seriously, that's probably why she added a little can of corned beef hash. it added the salt and extra flavour to the otherwise bland shredded protein and fillers. smoked fish was also longstanding, and the bread was probably more like hard biscuits. we had day or three old pumpernickel or rye that was toasted solid.

this was peasant food meant to be served on board a ship out on a multi-day fishing trip in order to use up leftovers,




or onshore before planning a raid of weak villages...

I'm sure the pickles and smoked fish and meat add plenty flavor
I'm going to experiment a bit! Have to try this
