This was one of our “fancier” meals growing up and when Mama made it, our busy teenage worlds stopped so we could all sit down at the table.
When I was younger, one of the best restaurants in Huntsville, Alabama was The Fogcutter. I remember one evening I had plans to go there on a date when I found out Mama was making her Eye Of Round meal for supper that night. I actually called my date, had him cancel the reservations, and invited him to eat at our house instead!
