Wednesday, January 15, 1936

Washed table linen and towels today and made cherry pudding*
Done chores for Aunty
Windy south wind turning to a little rain this P.M.
Called for Aunty to enquire of Alice Bristol's illness-
She is able to be around again
Mother has resented me all day and been uneasy-

Old fashioned cherry pudding

*I found a great blog called One Hundred Years Ago. Here is the recipe for Cherry Pudding. Since it is January in 1936, I assume Irene is using canned cherries, possibly ones she put up herself. 

It is a good thing I am trying to be healthier, otherwise I would be baking my way through this diary like Julie Powell & Mastering the Art of French Cooking.

Thanks for visiting this flashback to 1936. I'm sure Irene would be pleased! We'd love to hear from you.
