I love this! You've made a great selection of words here, and with them you've painted a stunning picture of warmth, comfort, and love.

And yes, I could almost smell the mouth-watering aromas too!

Awww. What a delightful read. This was beautiful...Thank you for this.

I got teary eyed and smiled at your "note" at the end. Those treasured memories of your beloved grandparents came flooding through your story.

As writers, we all bring a large piece of "who we are" to our stories. NIcely done. And, hold those treasures in your heart always, until you see them again. God Bless~

This is a beautiful piece, well written, filled with nostalgic moments, and packed with word pictures. It left me wanting to read more.

This story built very nicely to a warm and heart tugging conclusion.

The list of food tasted great, but I struggled with the punctuation. One list was made into several by periods. Maybe something like, "Of course there was also..."could have introduced more foods. Just a thought.

I loved the footnote and appreciated that info.

I love the one-footed duck. :) Also, you had my mouth watering at the descriptions of the food. Nice job in giving us a glimpse of your childhood.

A very well written interesting story which I thoroughly enjoyed. Hope it does well for you!
This is a beautiful journey back into your wonderful memories of your childhood. How fun it is to share those good old days with our children. I loved the description of the outhouse. As a person who has difficulty with change, I could emphasize with Grandma preferring the outhouse!
I enjoyed your lyrical journey to childhood very much, and Grandma's cooking made me hungry--and I just had lunch!
