It’s shocking how years can go by without one's seeing some relatives. So, naturally, we were so pleased when Bryan’s niece decided to come out to the coast for a holiday.
Bryan made a pizza to serve them as soon as they arrived.
Angela and Cristian
Naturally, there was a lot of reminiscing about family. Angela made us laugh with her stories about her grandmother who I always remember as such a lady.
Can you imagine Kay cursing under her breath while trying to fix a leaky faucet?
Angela also remembers Kay frequently setting things on fire in the kitchen. Heating buns in a paper bag was a tricky operation for Kay even though she would conscientiously dampen the outside of the bag. In addition, well-done chicken and beef made regular appearances on Kay’s table.
However, Angela noted Kay’s more elegant efforts. A red jellied salad containing canned fruit cocktail was often served along with the aforementioned chicken or beef.
As an appetizer, Kay would set half a canned pear on a leaf of Iceberg Lettuce, cover it with Miracle Whip and a sprinkling of paprika. (This actually sounded very like one of my favourite Cordon Bleu recipes!
Kay`s desserts included Davy Crockett balls, raspberry pies, and, of course, that Chocolate Cake which, I insist, is the best ever! For recipe, see http://eleanorstadnyk.blogspot.ca/2014/08/nicoles-day.html
