My favorite family cooking traditions
Dutch Ovens dishes, grilling Steaks, and salads basically picnicing at home. Dad made a round table with the center raised that would spin so you could grab what you wanted and spin it later for seconds. It held parents and all my siblings and our spouses. (16 total).
