All my siblings except my baby sister Sandy met at our mom's last night for a family potluck supper.My nieces and their families were also there. We had so much food until you couldn't get a sample of everything on your plate. (Not counting three desserts!) I made meatloaf,loaded mashed potatoes, and beef tips with onion gravy. All of us try to eat healthy , but twice a month...we meet at Mama's and nearly kill ourselves!
