Supper time (and breakfast)

I was in the USN with a Jack Link.... could it be? Nah!

Supper time. One of my favorite meals growing up was simply, cornbread and milk. I add a goodly portion of onion.
Sherry ate it growing up but prefers pinto beans and cornbread. I bring this up only because I talked to Jim, a friend and neighbor here at the RV Park. He was telling me that Cornbread & milk was one of his favorites (he also liked onion with it).
There were nine kids in his family and he said one of his favorite breakfasts was his mama’s big pot of rice with a can of Banner sausage mixed in. It made me hungry when he mentioned it. HA!
We seldom had rice for breakfast but Sherry’s family did. One of my favorites for breakfast was mama’s gravy and biscuits.
Mama had a couple things that would get your attention at breakfast: She would melt or fry cheese. She also made a tough biscuit dough and flattened it sorta like a big pancake and fry it in butter she had churned. After the butter, then both sides were fried, covered with granulated sugar soaked into that butter. That solved any sweet tooth.
Another of mama’s breakfasts was scrambled eggs and salmon, I loved it. Sherry does that at times.
Mama allowed Shirley and me to sweeten coffee and soak yesterday’s biscuits in it, we called them ‘soakies.’ Now I am getting hungry and I have gained about 5 pounds around my birthday. OUCH….
