Right now I am putting together home made bread, I am waiting for the liquid to cool and then I mix and then I knead it. The old man put together beef vegetable soup, lord its a huge pot, turnips, green beans, corn, brussel sprouts (little cabbages as he says)celery tomatoes..and spices that are a secret. It has cooked for two days and should be ready when the oldest daughter her hubby and kids come for supper at Grandmas. We hold fast with the sunday tradition of dinner at grandmas, usually I try to do it every week but lately I have been too pooped to pop....I never had this tradition as a girl, my grandma was in a wheel chair and we lived 50 miles away, which in the days before two lane highways (50's) was a long the old man decided to start this and it may be hectic but these are the things you remember about your childhood when you start getting snow on the roof.

well bless your heart - about halloween my dad used to make one more trip to the garden and cook up his "end of the garden soup"- he'd boil up a ham hock or soup bone of some kind and he'd usually find an onion, corn, maybe a few buried spuds, rhutabaga, beets or whatever was out there forgotten or bruised or overlooked, clean them up and trim off the bad parts and boy that was a treat. and yup mom had homemade bread. :)
