Setting the Table
When I was little, MaMaw always fixed my plate at every family dinner. I never minded, except for one glaring violation, her selection. In general, I’m not a picky eater and was raised to consume the bright orange carrots, sun-ripened tomatoes, and the crisp snow peas directly from our garden. MaMaw was born in the deep south, and that meant our table was filled with things like dark green collards simmered with bacon. Even these were something I would joyfully eat without the slightest hesitation. For me, there was one thing that completely ruined every family feast we ever had, Great Grandma Murphy’s coleslaw. It was her signature dish, and she brought it to every single dinner, thus, to be nice, MaMaw put it on my plate. For the first ten years of my life, I had to choke down the shredded cabbage, laden with a gritty sugared mayonnaise.
