It is the time of year when I am sewing a lot, but can’t show anything because they are Christmas and birthday presents. I did get a new pattern at the Simplicity sale though.
I just think this jacket would look cute on M and also on A, if she likes it (the one in the upper right). I would have to lengthen it a bit, but otherwise very cute.
Now, in honor of Grandma G and Thanksgiving, we will go back to her Wisconsin days for a few seasonal recipes. These recipes date back to the 1920’s.
Cut slices of canned cranberry sauce and place the rounds on lettuce leaves. Sprinkle with a layer of chopped celery, spread on a layer of salad dressing (doesn’t specify which kind but probably a cooked salad dressing). Sprinkle thickly with chopped salted almonds.
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Boil 5 or 6 sweet potatoes until done. Peel, then mash or put through a potato ricer. Add
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 T melted butter
1/2 cup hot milk
Beat together until light and well mixed, adding chopped nuts and raisins to taste. Put mixture into a casserole, cover with marshmallows, and bake in moderate oven (350 degrees) until the marshmallows are brown and puffy.
