    Our mothers grew up on a rural TN farm & the food my grandmother cooked for them, and they later cooked for us, included tender meats, creamy mashed potatoes, farm fresh vegetables, scratch biscuits, and sweet tea. All of these amazing cooks from our past are gone now but the memories of the meals at that farm have never faded. To honor this heritage, my cousin & I gathered at this southern restaurant near our former family farm, to celebrate our mothers--and the meals we once shared together.

    I think it's beautiful that I can't physically see food in this picture but food is what connected you and your cousin's memories. I love that you two come together nearby the farm to remember them. It's a lovely story, Jodie. Thank you for sharing with us!
