Some of the recipes are still simmering on the back burner of my computer. These are some I've prepared to share with you. (For Cajun-style cooking, please go to the Cajun Recipes page. For family recipes, go to the Family Recipes page - under construction.)
by Floyd Johnson*
The family all gathered in joyous reunion,
Every leaf of the table stretched out
Pottery dishes on a dainty table cloth
And Mama bustling about.
Her hair done up with pins real pretty
Sensible shoes with cotton hose
She would be wearing her Sunday-best apron
Not caring for high-fashion clothes.
Soon Mama would say let everyone have a seat
And the atmosphere was really great
Then the talk would erupt and flow everywhere
We knew love was in that place.
Now my Mother's house is no more
My Mom and My Dad are gone
I look in the mirror, and wonder about myself
But time doesn't go backwards, but goes on.
