Ma is preparing to get the groceries in for her baking extravaganza tomorrow and Tuesday.
She’s getting ready for her Victorian Christmas next Saturday at the Tearoom.
I’m helping. She says what I want her to make wouldn’t fit with the taste of most people in the USA!
She pulling out lots of old recipes.
Granny’s boiled fruit cake is right up there.
Don’t know why that made Ma go all soft. She says it’s because it’s in Granny’s writing and is all full of marks of love from much use.
Her own cook book from school days is already half a century old and has been through the wars. Afternoon tea is a key section.
It’s great for reenacting the past.
Maybe a record party will be in order some day!
