To My Mom and her DAH HAH's
Growing up in a small town such as Quincy Florida my mother was always suffering financially with having to feed 9 kids. She came up with meals that would feed us all. She wanted our meals to hearty and nutritious. We'd use chicken pieces because chicken breast was too expensive. She would throw a lot things in a pot at once and call it DAH HAH. DAH HAH was a word she made up when she would look in the refrigerator or pantry to come up with something to eat. I love my mama and I am so grateful that she could put food on the table for us to eat. This goes out to you mama. I Love You.
