This “Mom’s kitchen” association came from a conversation I was having with a friend regarding the upcoming brunch I host each year for my quilting group. This is our annual party, hosted by the one who has enough room to host each year (that being me). The hostess is responsible for the main entrée and the girls all bring sides to accompany and the deserts. I am always puzzled by what to fix, as I want the dish to be really tasty, yet not be so large that I wind up with leftovers for a week after the event. My friend suggested I serve ham loaves, a favorite of his family and community for decades. It came to me that ham loaves were also a favorite of my mother - a possibility worth investigating.
