When I first met my husband years ago, one of the things I loved most was getting to know his Grandma Jolley. She wasn’t too sure about me at first but we eventually bonded over the love of cooking. She was an amazing cook and made everything from scratch. We had the chance to live close to them for one year while my husband was waiting to get into dental school. During that time I learned Grandma Jolley (Louise) was a force to be reckoned with. She said exactly what she thought and was always in charge. It’s just how she was and everyone just knew that the kitchen was her domain!
Every Saturday morning everyone also knew that Grandma would have homemade wheat pancakes and waffles for breakfast. She would make these for hours on end as her children, their spouses, and grandchildren would all wander in for breakfast. Sundays were family pot roast day. Everyone would come over for the time they could spend together, and for her incredible food! Her roast beef and mashed potatoes
