on this Remembrance Day, I watched the Ottawa ceremony on tv, thinking of the members of my family and all the others whose service provided us with the freedom we enjoy… I also thought proudly of my sick son-in-law who was participating in the service I was watching…

then when I was in the kitchen I decided to make a few dishes from those who have left us…

I started with homemade coleslaw which I’ve been craving for a while… it is based on a recipe from a special woman who often fed large groups of people, so my well-worn recipe has a few different options for measurements, lol…

then I made chicken and dumplings, one of my mom’s recipes…

finally I decided on meatballs and sauce… I used store-bought meatballs but made my dad’s homemade sauce… the recipe is just in my head… I cooked spaghetti and packaged meals for lunches and suppers this week…

will share some of these meals as I don’t like to freeze things if I don’t have to;-)…

ended the evening with my BS buddies… I truly am blessed
