Sunday, February 16, 1936

Icy but plesant
30 [degrees] above zero at noon-
Thawed some in the sun-
Had company dinner and not any one came*- Roast pork^- mashed potatoes, brown gravy, spinach, sweet potatoes, pickle pears, bread and butter, and pumpkin pie-
Iliff called this eve-
Washed Mothers neck and combed her hair- She has been good all day

Pork loin from The Comfort of Cooking^

*This is so sad. Irene spent 2-3 days preparing this amazing meal & no one came, probably due to the ice. Poor Great-grandma.

  1. That's the worst. How very disheartening.

    1. I know. I feel so bad for her & it was 78 years ago.


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