Great photo.

I could mistake this one for a Norman Rockwell painting.


The pitcher on the table is depression glass: "Manhattan" by Anchor Hocking.

Re-Remembering Gingerbread

I am from the UK originally and I remember my Grandma fixing this. Yum!!!

Remembering gingerbread

In the olden days, Moms often whipped up freshly baked warm, home-made gingerbread for dessert. Sometimes it was topped with real whipped cream and chopped nuts. I reckon that is what the Mutz family is having tonight.

Mmmm - Cake for desert!

Please pass the ketchup.
