I loved reading this as your description of the hearty food you ate at breakfast, dinner, and supper (plus the desserts!) made me smile. I know you said you grew up on a farm in Kentucky, but I can't help but think of one of my favorite childhood books, Laura Ingalls Wilder's Farmer Boy. It focused on her husband's boyhood growing up on a farm in upstate New York. She lavished so much attention on the incredible hearty meals Almanzo's mother and sisters made.

Thank you for the smile!
