Happy Father's Day!
I'm dedicating today's post to my daddy. He lives too far away for me to celebrate him in person so I've made a dish that represents him, and where he came from. A special connection that has always been important to me.
My dad grew up in a small town in Northern Alabama called Geraldine. He moved to California and pursued a successful music career and raised a family. Despite his claim to fame, he has always remained the down to earth, funny, and wonderful man that he was raised to be.
Some of you might recognize him
Growing up, my summer visits to Alabama made such a huge impact on me. Connecting with my dad's side of the family and his childhood, remains to this day a special part of who I am. I am, and will always be a daddy's girl. I am proud of my dad and proud to be his daughter.
Today, in honor of my dad and his roots, I am sharing a dish my grandmother used to make. The ingredients are simple and few. The quantities are subject to taste. So have at it, and enjoy a bit of soul from the south.
- 1/2 large onion
- 1/2 cup flour
