Childhood food memories
Thinking about food, which I often do, brought to mind my childhood picnics. I am sure that no one else in the world ever had the picnics that I had as a child. My grandparents, who were from the Ukraine, would take us on a picnic hike. I am not sure how long the hike was but when we got to the proper spot, we kids would go running off to explore along the creek while my grandparents would dig a hole in the ground and bury potatoes and then somehow start a fire and bake them. When the potatoes were baked, they would dig them up and clean them off and we would eat them out of hand with homemade dill pickles!! I never knew that anyone ate anything else but that when on a picnic until I was in my early teens. I will treasure the memories of those early childhood Sundays the rest of my life! I am sure that many of you have equally wonderful childhood memories associated with food. Would love to hear them!
