Have you ever enjoyed bread and gravy for supper? I certainly enjoyed it as a child, but was it just our family’s custom? Just a slab of bread smothered with gravy. Delish!
Dad enjoyed saltine crackers and milk for dessert. Mom said the first time he did that after they were married, she thought he was still hungry and she hadn’t cooked enough food. No, it was something he’d enjoyed when he was a child.
Grandma Ruby’s parents were German. Was this a German treat? Grandpa Kenneth’s folks came from Tennessee and Indiana. No clues there. Or was it just a Neal family invention?
Crackers and milk never caught on with me, but bread and gravy sure did. At least until I ended up with a gluten allergy. Gluten-free bread and gluten-free gravy just doesn’t have the same texture, the same “comfort factor.”
Does your family have an unusual or interesting food quirk?
