So sorry this is late, but I had a very busy night at work last night and I came home a crashed for 2 hours. So now I am running so far behind. Today I should have been cleaning, but I decided to make crafts today. I am working some things for my website and as of now I just need to prim them up and they'll be ready.
For my recipe I thought I would share one of my Grandma's recipes and words of wisdom. When I married the first time at my bridal shower everyone was to bring a copy of their favorite recipe for me to have when I got married. My grandma went and bought a spiral bound index card booklet to start writing down recipes. Unfortunately, she got brain cancer and passed away not too long after she wrote part of this so it was never finished. So I will share with you today her recipe for Lemon Sauce.
2 TBSP cornstarch
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup boiling water
lemon flavoring and a dash of nutmeg
That's all she wrote. However, she added these words of wisdom.
Good to use on stale cake or cupcakes. Put cake in a saucer and pour over. You can't throw away stale cake. You have to learn to save if you ever want to save any money. We did on $15.00 a week and paid $20.00 a month rent.
Can you imagine??? $20.00 a month rent. Or only making $15.00 a week. But times were different then as she was born in 1911 and my grandpa was born in 1907. They both have been gone for quite some time now, but I am so happy to have what recipes I do. I remember going to her house and she always frosted her cookies with a colored sugar glaze type frosting, but, she never told me that recipe. Or she would make me grits for breakfast when I spent the night which was rare. Oh to be able to talk to her now.
As promised I will take my camera tomorrow on my way to class and take some pics if it doesn't rain. So come back Monday and hopefully I will have more to share. Sorry about no pics, but I don't want to give away what I've been working on. LOL.
