RE: Food Memories
Being with my Maternal Grandparents in the kitchen helping make Peanut Squares. My Grandmother would make a sponge cake, with me being able to help make it. It was my Grandfather's job to help shuck the un-salted peanuts and then I was to grind them with a small hand nut grinder(before the days of a food processor) into a large bowl. When the cake was cooled , cut into squares and nuts ground , a hot vanilla icing was made. We'd drop the squares in coat them well in the icing and then quickly roll them into the peanuts and set them on a cooling rack to set up and "dry". During that time I was allowed to have my own cup of coffee to drink, mind you that the half n' half ratio to coffee was fairly strong, and one of the hard earned treats. Both are gone and now and I've developed an allergy to peanuts , but I still remember those times( along with many others) in their kitchen spending time with them.
