Saturday, April 18, 1936

Snow on the ground this morning but melted off by noon-
Snowed some all day but melted as it fell.
Made tapioca custard and 32 cup cakes* and stewed apples-
Swept and dusted and mopped the kitchen-
and done all the chores as usual-
Mother has been fairly good today


Cupcakes by Heather Dolton


*Considering the amount of baking Irene did weekly, I think she would be proud of her pastry chef, great-granddaughter, Heather Dolton, who created the cupcakes in the picture above.

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