The MOST delicious meal my Mom used to make for us was fried chicken, Spaetzle and a lettuce salad with oil,vinegar and sugar...my mouth is watering just remembering this meal. For her 80th birthday in 1990 ALOT of us gathered at her home in Kelowna for a surprise birthday party and we asked her if she would cook us this meal for HER party!!! She was honoured. ALL her siblings and her 5 children were there...even her sister Esther(from Switzerland) was there. We had such a good visit. My Mom died in 1996...sure do miss her. Today is a rainy dull day in Victoria...thought this was a good blog for such a day.
