I went to Mom's early to make the fried fruit tarts for her. It requires rolling out 20 biscuits and filling them with apricot stuff and frying them. Mom had already rolled out 20 biscuits for her chicken pie and it's just hard, labor intensive work. I told her that when she is gone those people are not getting chicken pie and tarts any more. I'm not making them!!! Actually, when the last few of that generation is gone, the tradition of a 4th of July reunion will probably die with them. The next generation (me) is just really not interested. I know I'm not!
