It is a rainy day here in Illinois
and I am sitting snuggled in my chair
my little corner of the world
This is the tale of 2 books
my "go to" cookbook
well worn with love
a Christmas present in 1974 when I was 14
I find it funny that it is from Grandma only and not
Grandma and Pa as most of my presents said
here I am that Christmas in 1974...or at least from the waist down
one of the tabs is broken off
Grandma made the best banana bread, I can remember sitting in her kitchen
writing down the recipes from her recipe box
The oatmeal cake we made on Thanksgiving
now what do you see?
The same cookbook in near mint condtion!
I found it out shopping last week for $2
very minimal wear over the last 40 years
oh no did I say 40 years, oh my gosh!
was not given to someone by their loving Grandma
perfect pages, no flour, splatters of batter
And I think never used because the tabs have never been taken out of the back
of the book.
It is going to 1515
So I will have my "go to" Cookbook there.
Of course Grandma's love it always with me.
