Mama and Daddy never had elegant meals but they always had plenty. If anybody came at meal time they invited them to eat.
Daddy wanted three meals a day.
For breakfast he had eggs, bacon, biscuits, gravy, oatmeal, coffee, and milk. We often had peanut butter and syrup with biscuits...still Margie's favorite. If we didn't have syrup Mama made sugar syrup.
Daddy took sandwiches in his lunch everyday, so if he was home at noon, he did not ever want sandwiches.
Mama's one treat night was on Saturday evening. We had fried bologna or Post Toasties and that was "her day off".
She made up for it on Sunday with a huge meal.
I think Daddy was partially responsible for my overeating problem -- He would say, "Come on, you didn't have enough to eat, have a little more, have another piece of cake."
Mama made a cake nearly every day.
There was always something to eat.
