When I do the "spread," my brother always wants to know when the Swedish army is arriving...

Mom made too many yummy things to list them all, but there are two dishes I haven't been able to get close to duplicating. The first was her roasted, cut up chicken. Have never gotten the cooking/seasoning/roasting just right. Must be the falling-on-the-floor part that makes it special. (True story: then-boyfriend's family was over for dinner. When Mom got all the chicken on the platter it shifted, causing quite a few pieces to hit the floor. She looked at his Mom, his Mom said "I take it you washed the floor?" and when Mom answered yes his Mom said "well work quick before someone sees!" and they picked them up. Didn't marry him, but I sure loved his Mom.)

My other favorite but can't copy dish was her beef stew. I have tried every imaginable thing to make it taste the same and have given up. Instead, I make a mean beef Burgundy, and enjoy the fact that my Mom always told me SHE just couldn't make HER pot roast taste like mine.

My Mom did liver and onions and cooked them in bacon grease. The only way she could get me to eat that danged liver was to bribe me with the bacon. Couldn't have any until I ate my piece of liver. Child Abuse!

Must be trying to inspire all of you to make your souls as white at the new-driven snow. Or as white as the sauces and whipped cream!

Oh My, I haven't thought of this for ages! Not even sure if I've made them since our (now 32 years old) kids were born. Ohhh, now I have the worst taste for them. Look for them to be a "Dinner...." thread soon.

Pork (and sometimes veal) on a stick.
It's breaded, fried, then baked. I might have a picture around somewhere...
You can make your own, but up here it's often sold already on the skewer.
