Looking at the photos I have of old barns taken while we were in Tennessee, couple with the thought of every time Neal and I talk, we talk about things we ate as kids...and talk about what we wish we had now.  So thought I would give a partial list of some of my favorite foods I ate as a kid.

Bacon and biscuits, biscuits and gravy,
Cocoa

Fried taters, fried green tomatoes,
Soup beans and cornbread

Fried chicken, chicken gravy,
and mashed potatoes...

Blackberry cobbler, fried apple pies,
Stack cakes.
..
What more could a person ask for...

Fresh tenderloin, breaded and fried, with a hot biscuit,
Biscuits and homemade jelly

Potato soup, mustard greens, bacon and cornbread,

Chicken-n-dumplings...

Green beans and fried okra...
Corn on the cob, or corn cut off the cob...anyway that is fresh from the garden..

.
These are just a few of my favorite memories, with most of them being things I loved to eat....the exception being stack cakes.  I could eat it, but I didn't love it, though I did love the dough, raw, as my mom made the cakes.

Of all the things listed, I would most dearly love to have my mom's chicken and dumplings and some of her bisuits.

Edited to add...Blogger won't let me space this as I would like...this is my third try of trying to edit it.  If it does not 'take' this time, I will leave it however blogger does it.

Uour spacing looks alright. I remember my grandmother's clover leaf rolls and sweet buns, she would frost some with chocolate just for me. This barn still looks pretty good.

Spacing looks good to me too. Yum, I love what you ate as a kid, and I love the barn. Every time I see a Tennessee barn you post I want to head back there.

The spacing looks okay. Have you kept a written journal of your memories of childhood??

They all sound very good to me. Many of those I had as a child too. We had little money, but ate very well on the farm.

Great memories. My Mother was a single Mom trying to raise us wild children. My sis and I did a lot of the cooking---probably terrible. But my Mother-in-law was a truly farm gal cook. She made wonderful tummy filling foods. And she baked like a crazy woman. Her butterhorns were the best. Thanks for the memories, Rose.
I wish someone would do a barn blog. MB

All of those foods are quite familiar here in central KY. That barn looks like it could be down the road from me :)

You ate some great stuff when you were a kid! So many foods to choose from when you crave ?comfort food."

That's a lot of how I cook and we eat now. I wonder, years from now if my children will be remembering and missing all these good things.
