My Grandparents were hardworking people. The lived on a ranch, and whenever we went there, we know we were going to have jobs to do. Sometimes, when we told my parents we were bored, they would drive my siblings and I out there just for something to do. They thought it was hard work, I thought it was fun. There was so much to do there, you were never left twiddling your thumbs I can tell you that much. They always let us decide what tasks we wanted to do too. They never made us do the awful jobs like cleaning up after the horses. Feeding them though, we could do that. Whatever we did, we were helping them out in some way. We were also getting some good bonding time in with them.
When all the work was through, there was always a hearty homemade meal waiting for us too. My Grandma was awesome in the kitchen. She could take just a few ingredients and turn it into a masterpiece. Thankfully, I paid attention.
One of my favorite meals was her ham and potato casserole. My mom often made it too. There weren’t many food items required to toss it together so it was affordable. It was a lot like this recipe from Spend With Pennies, and I still make it to this day.
