Eldene Hinde said her mom, Ida Mae Skipworth, was the happiest when she had any of her children and/or grandchildren sitting at her kitchen table. She always had some kind of food or snacks prepared. Two of the many that were favorites were the beef scoops and goot balls. Both are quick and easy, said Hinde.
