Grandma Burton

I miss her homemade root beer, pickles and relish. I especially miss her bread and butter pickles. Noontime dinners were the best at Grandma’s house. Grandma would set the table in the dinning room, have the meal on the table and then march out the back door and ring the old school bell. When the bell rang, we new it was time to eat. After ringing the bell, Grandma would yell, “Kids, Sam, Fran!” and then “us kids” would yell back “Cisco!” We did not dilly-dally, we ran from wherever we were playing and sat down to eat. Grandma was a great cook. Her noontime meal usually consisted of a main course meat such as pot roast, chicken, or pork chops. Mashed potatoes and gravy were almost always served. Grandma would also serve some type of other vegetable but for some reason I can’t quite remember what they were, probably because I was more interested in the potatoes and gravy. Bread and butter were staples at the table, along with pickles and relish.
