When I was growing up, I was blessed to have my grandparents live in a downstairs apartment in our house. My grandmother would cook dinner (the noon meal) for whoever was there or happened to drop by. The leftovers were saved for supper (the evening meal) for she and my grandfather and for my brother and me as snacks when we got off the school bus in the afternoon. This simple dish was one we looked forward to along with her fried okra. Mama Tomerlin raised her 9 children and blessed her 36 grandchildren with her wonderful "scratch cooking" - a cook who could go into the kitchen and make a delicious meal from whatever was on hand.
