I’ll bet you understand, though. Doesn’t it seem that sometimes, right out of the blue, a favorite food comes to mind and you immediately wish you could have some?
Well . . . there was no gingerbread and no chance of making any. I didn’t have all the necessary ingredients on hand. So, I decided to pull out the recipe and add what I needed to this week’s shopping list.
Here’s the recipe I found, written in my very own childish scrawl at the age of about 8 yrs. old. In those days, I used to be my mother’s “secretary”. Often, we’d be visiting a friend or relative who wanted to share a recipe with us, and my Mum (usually holding onto a baby – or three!) would ask me to do the copying.
You’ll notice that this was a piece of “scrap” paper. Luckily, I was able to eek out a bit of space to finish the recipe on the printed side! (By the way, I’m sure the final phrase “add raisins” means that they are optional and, if desired, should be added before you bake the gingerbread! LOL
“So what did this little “scribe” look like?” You ask.
This picture was taken a couple of years before the recipe was written; it’s my first grade photo. I’m wearing my school uniform, which included the blue satin hair bow(!) along with the blue jumper and white blouse.
As you can clearly see, it appears that jewelry was a fixture in my wardrobe even then! 😉
Hugs for all,
