Leftover cut up cooked beef (Frances used steak)

Frances served this with "Spoon Bread."

Frances was one of the Fortson clan. Katie (Getzen) Mealing, my grandmother, and the Fortson's grandmother, Mary "Minnie" Mealing Getzen Fortson, were best friends and double first cousins. The families visited often when Katie and Minnie were young. I have one long letter from Minnie to Katie shortly after her marriage to Thomas Willis Fortson. It gives a little insight as to why we inherited a "hard head" gene. When Frances's husband retired from the army, they settled on a farm outside of Columbus near Fortson. Ross told a story of how he learned to farm the hard way. After reading about a feed additive for cattle, he decided, if a little was good, a lot had to be even better. So....he gave his new herd a mega-dose; nearly killing them! That should teach us all a lesson to read and follow directions.
