I so agree, Lee, about stories around food and recipes. And although she didn’t call it “mush,” my grandmother used to make something that sounds similar- cornbread made like a pancake in a skillet w lots of Crisco. I’m salivating just thinking about it. I wrote at Numbering Your Days this week about how to have a story feast bc I think stories and feasting go hand in hand. Your story would be a great one to share with your nieces and nephews at a story feast!
