I was browsing through several cook books I had inherited from my mother, who passed away a year ago this month.
The oldest one I inherited is from 1937. What’s so interesting about this particular book is that it doesn’t just contain recipes, it has all sorts of information that relates to the lifestyle of a early 1930’s housewife.
I don’t know about you, but I love reading and learning about how women lived, cooked and decorated their homes in another era.
My mother, who’s name was Cledia Althea, was married in 1938.
But at the age of only nine years old her mother had passed away and she was in charge of the household.
She had a little brother who was four years younger she was also responsible for too.
They went to school everyday, then my mother would come home and prepared their meals.
I can’t begin to tell you how much I admire my mother.
Maybe someday I will write a book about her for my grandchildren.
I think it’s good for the younger generation to know the background of there ancestors.
I’m sorry I got side-tracked, now on to the book. I will let each page speak for itself.
Now, there you have it!
You were either bored out of your gourd or, hopefully like me, enjoyed a small look back into the life of a 1930’s housewife.
I am thinking of doing a weekly segment on days gone by….
What do you think?
Is this anything that would interest you?
I don’t want someone saying, “Oh no, today’s the day Kim’s going to blab on about all that old stuff”.
So be honest, I have thick enough skin.
