I have that same Betty Crocker cookbook! My mother was a home ec major and it was one of her textbooks. It’s chock full of her college girl notes and reminds me of the warm loving home I grew up in.

Thank you for your entertaining and relatable posts, always a fun read. Happy Thanksgiving!

your clever writing and well-chosen illustrations distracts me from my usual irritation with the privileged folk with functioning, not rat and roach-infested kitchens.

I create durable Hippie-woven potholders:

I love those old cook books and their sage advice . My own mother was a terrible cook , white lumps in the gravy , gross “ Swiss steak “ . Anything grilled was a charred lump of who knew what . Anything in a can , remember those disgusting peas , or a box made its way to our table She embraced TV dinners with great enthusiasm , at last convinced there was a God . We really looked forward to that blueberry buckle . Fortunately , we did take a lot of vitamins and had no food allergies.

Love this Kim! Craig Claiborne’s cookbook is essential too. My mother and I love cooking Thanksgiving together. We use all of my grandmother’s recipes with a few new ones. Source as much as we can from the farmers market, Turkey always from savenor’s. Happy Happy Thanksgiving!!!
