She is famous for just putting the lids on everything after Thanksgiving dinner until we all come back at 6 to eat again. I therefore try to "help" with the cooking and clean up (ie put the darn food in the fridge when we are done!) so I can eat and not worry about a trip to the emergency room!!!! Oh yeah-handwashing not so important either uuuuggggghhhhh!!!!!
Heehee, well, you know, maybe it made these folks a lot tougher physically, haha! Did you ever notice that, they seem to be able to withstand anything! Hhmn, I remember well when folks didn't worry about how long mayonaisse stayed at room temperature either and yet I don't remember anyone getting sick from it.
Haha, she does sound like a very interesting individual!
