Sunday Dinners

Contributor: Robert G Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

Grandpa Winters made Sunday dinner every Sunday for years for all of the grandkids (and their friends/spouses) attending Brigham Young University. As one of the friends (later spouse), I benefited from his generosity. He made a delicious meatloaf, that he served with potatoes, green beans and a yummy brown gravy. He also made Kinnip (sp?) which was a German dish that his wife, Lydia, used to make. It was country-style boneless pork ribs with potatoes and dumplings mixed with sauerkraut. It was a lot of work to make. We helped out with dishes afterward, and then would stay and visit into the evening. Sometimes we'd listen to someone play the piano, sometimes we'd watch TV with Grandpa in the back room, sometimes we'd just sit and visit. I always felt welcome at Grandpa Winters' home.

Woodrow June Winters was born on 26 Feb 1917
Woodrow June Winters was 12 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.
