    Your mother's cooking

    So, fess up. You dig it? Great? Horrendous? Post about it.

    Nanay's cooking is a mixed bag.

    1) garlic fried rice/fried rice anything - awesome
    2) mom's eggs & breakfast food - bring a tear to your eye

    other stuff, not so much. What about you?

    I dislike mom's chili. I make it better (dad even agreed once upon a time. not to mom, though).

    Otherwise, she's a pretty good standard meat & potatoes cook.
    I eat a little different- lighter, more variety. But some comfort food is always nice to go to mom's for.

    A thought I had on Thanksgiving: what if your SO's cooking had been totally incompatible with your Thanksgiving Day expectations? For example, a couple of years ago my wife and I attended a T-Day meal with friends. They served NOTHING I liked--no turkey, no mashed potatoes, no stuffing, etc.

    Clearly they were OK with those dishes. If I'd been dating the woman in that couple and she'd told me the menu....let's just say, it had better be True Love.

    My mother can cook quite well, or at least I like to think so. Basic southern food. Dad was in charge of Mexican food and the grill when I was a kid.

    Much the same rules apply in casa de sharr. I man the grill, make the tacos and chili, etc. If it gets much beyond that, my wife steps in and takes over.

    S'ok. She bakes very well, however her main meal reportoire consists of probably 6 meals. Spaghetti (which she makes with tomato paste and water), meatloaf (that uses a bottle of ketchup and I burp all night), liver and onions, mac & cheese (a few slices of american cheese and a little milk over noodles), pot roast (that was good) and once in a while a beef roast that the baked till it was so dry that it flaked off and once in a while shake n bake... - oh yeah and a canned ham - which she nuclear blasted too (I mean it's cooked already) so that it was crisp.

    So basically I never learned or had the want to cook at home --- till my ex-husband's mother - she was a great cook on big meals. When I'm with my Mom, I do all the cooking - and experimenting.

    Yes she is. We started dancing together and we still do a little bit to this day.

    Mostly lots of casseroles made with canned soup and tuna. She can make a good dish though, when she tries.

    Huh. Sounds like Minnesota-style "hot dish".

    Mom's was just Hunt's tomato paste and water. She used no salt in anything, there was no onions, peppers, etc in it. Just hamburger. It was pretty bland!

    My mother is Thai. Everything she makes is good.
    I think I know what Shadiya is talking about. Mormon food generally consists of roasts, bakes, casseroles and jello.

    Ugh! My mom used to make spaghetti sauce like that except with a bit of garlic salt in it. I think cans her own now out of garden tomatoes, so its much better now.

    My mom made horrible food when I was younger, but she has gotten much much better.

    It's only recently that I began to realize that being a single income family with two hungry boys may have had a big impact on what she could afford to make us. Now that both of my parents work full time and they have no dependent children, she can afford much better/more exotic ingredients and they now go to much nicer restaurants that inspire her to try cooking those things at home.

    LUCKY!

    Yeah, if you live in Utah and have lived or hung around in a Mormon family, you know what I'm talking about. We didn't have many roasts in my family growing up, but that seems to be her favorite Sunday dinner dish made in the crockpot now.

    I think that was one of the problems with my family too. We were very poor when I was a teenager and I don't think she could afford much good food. Now, she has more time and money and she's more inspired with good food that she eats from restaurants.

    My ex-husband grew up in a family of 5 boys and 1 girl - all the boys are big robust athletes who were either power builders, wrestling or football champs - so needless to say - they devoured everything - and his parents didn't have much so the ex said they ate A LOT of pasta ---- and she would make a kind of ham salad (I watched her - she made probably 2 gallons at one time!) out of bologna - which is also the meat the ex says, was their staple.

    Mom (may she rest in peace), was 1st generation Italian. Just about everything she made was from scratch, and was so good it brought near-strangers to the door around suppertime.

    She was a traditional mom in every sense of the word, and she loved it. So did we.
