Personal Notes:
When Roy and I were first married we lived in North Carolina, my home state. We decided to go back and visit Mom (Mallie) and Pop (Fred) for a couple of weeks. I lost 9 lbs. Pop was horrified. He thought my Mom and Dad would think that they had mistreated me. The problem was that Mom thought Roy hadn't had Mexican food in years. She tried to make up for it in weeks. At that time she was seasoning all the food as she prepared it and wasn't leaving it up to each individual - everything was too hot for me. I couldn't eat the food. Roy was thriving and I was starving. On the sly, Roy had to stop at the local hamburger joint and buy me a hamburger. Pop fed me plums and other fruit and Mom happily cooked away. I survived and learned to fix roll ups myself. I like doing it with wild game. I like mixing in the beans. I love emptying the frig and dumping everything in it - great fresh way to get rid of left overs and it's cheap - everything is on hand. Roy Jr. and his friends could go through several dozen growing up. He and his friends still talk about Mom coming for a visit and how she used to get in the kitchen and fix them her roll ups and yes, their mouths still water with anticipation!
