Too Young to Remember

Very few people know how Mama was able to create that special taste with a black cast-iron skillet, cooking oil, salt and pepper and some backyard garden herbs, and one chicken!

She could create a special taste with some yams, butter and sugar, cooking in a pot on top of the stove, then baking for awhile in the oven!

We didn’t have much money, but Mama somehow made every dinner especially wonderful, simply because that taste could never be duplicated..except by those with whom she chose to share her secrets!

And, I was in that lucky number!

Mama said that her mother taught her those secrets. I can vaguely remember Grandma. And Grandma had a mother that cared enough to teach her how to use the backyard herbs to creat special meals! (But I’m too young to remember Great Grandma!)
