Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Nora and George were good friends of Mom and Dad's. They would go antiqueing together on summer weekends and play cards on evening visits. This recipe from Nora is in Mom's handwriting on the back of a calendar day page dated Friday, Aug. 12, 1949. I remember Mom making peanut brittle - this well used recipe was probably the one she used.
