Family Traditions in the Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home and the most popular room in the house. At least, that is the way it was when I was growing up. We gathered around the kitchen table often to have family discussions and we always had interesting discussions as we sat together to have meals. The kitchen area of the home was the central area for every member of the family. Everyone moved in and out of the kitchen throughout the day. The kitchen was used not only for eating, but also for studying, planning, and even sitting with friends to talk and gathering for social parties.

I wanted to bring a bit of family into the kitchen so I found an old picture of my Papa basting a turkey and asked Joe's grandma Al for a picture of herself or her husband cooking. Coincidently she found a very similar picture of her basting a turkey. I blew them up put them in this frame.

It's nice having a piece of family in the kitchen with you cooking right along side you...
.It's like a piece of your heart goes into in every meal.
