Personal Notes:
Mother was the best cook ever. She was a marvelous cook. But Mother never used a recipe. Mother didn't make casseroles, because Daddy didn't like them. Daddy liked his meat and his vegetables separate, so Mother didn't make casseroles. The only thing Daddy ever liked mixed up was "Strawberry Mess".

My Grandmother loved to go fishing. She knew various good fishing spots in Miami, especially on the Bear Cut Bridge or the Rickenbacker Causeway. She would take my brother fishing, and they would bring home beautiful fresh ocean fish, such as red snapper. She cooked fish under the broiler, basting nearly constantly with butter until it was cooked perfectly. She served fish with home made french fries, cole slaw, and good cold iced tea and sliced key limes from her backyard tree.
