Did you grow up in a family where food was important?

My mum stayed at home when I was a child and she cooked everything from scratch. We each had a job and it was all hands on deck when it came to getting the meal on the table. Some of the food she cooked, such as stews and brown bread, I hated then but can appreciate now. Back then I wanted sliced white pan.
