Personal Notes:
I loved to cook and bake with Mema. She was quite a cook and very willing to share what she knew with me. Her doughnuts were to die for and sales of them helped them make it through the Depression.
For Halloween she made Popcorn Balls for special trick or treaters.
We ate Sunday dinner at their house often, always had Christmas dinner ofnthe Sunday before Christmas and celebrated my mother's Dec. 23 birthday then. Christmas Buffet at their house was a neighborhood and family tradition. Oddly, gross as it sounds I looked forward to her Suet Pudding with Hard Sauce, made only on Christmas, as I grew older..
