Collard and mustard greens mixed, topped with chopped onions. Moma’s favorite medley coupled with cast iron skillet-fried cornbread.
White rice and flour-and-Crisco oil brown gravy paired with butter-fried chicken.
Rutabagas and pepper sauce or Louisiana hot sauce. Not easy on the nose, but cultured the tastebuds.
Oven-toasted, cheese toast. . . cheese courtesy of the government, thickly sliced. Grandma called it commodity cheese.
Triple-layered chocolate cake draped over a large dinner plate –no cake dish. Oh, let’s not forget the occassional simplistic spiced orange pound cake.
Savory nostalgic aromas.
What childhood meals awaken your latent tastebuds?
