When you think of “kitchen”, being a southern girl, I automatically think of growing up in my grandmother’s kitchen, or in my case my Memaw and Nana’s kitchen. Weekends were often spent in that room enjoying that down south country cooking that only a granny can provide. And, after many attempts, you still can’t perfect their country gravy or strawberry cake.
So, I thought it would be a lovely idea to honor them in my kitchen. Therefore, I stole some of their old recipe’s out of each of their cook books, framed them up, and stuck them on my counter top so that I can enjoy them and think of them every day.
For those who are wondering listed below are the actual recipe:
Chicken Noodle Soup by Betty “Nana”
Boil 2 large chicken breasts
Save broth for noodles
1pkg large egg noodles
24 slices of American Cheese
1/2 pint of heavy whipping cream
Cook egg noodles in chicken broth. When done add chopped chicken, whipping cream, and cheese. Frozen peas and shredded carrots are optional.
Potato Casserole by Carolyn “Memaw”
