(a glimpse of our little world)
As good as mom’s

Ahhh, the aroma of the dinner wafts through the air! Tasting so much better because you have smelled it for over an hour (you know how that is)!
We’ve been married 21 years and I just started making this meal about 10 years ago. Every time we would go up ‘north’ to see my in-laws, my mother-in-law would come greet us and say “Guess what I am making?” With a inward groan, but a happy voice, I would say “Boiled Dinner?!?”
You see, I am not a ham eater, nor did I care for carrots too much, so this meal was absolutely not on MY list of favorites. But, after several years, it grew on me. And after several more years, I tried making it; wow, so easy! For the most part, this is a pretty frugal meal too, which is always a plus!
So, we enjoyed our boiled dinner this week, which turned out to be as good as mom’s!
