Holy Cow! Where has the summer gone? It seems like just yesterday I was planning and looking ahead to the warm summer days. Now it seems suddenly we have leaped into early autumn days of preparing the house and garden for winter.
Busy with fall cleaning I thought I would leave you with a few wise words that I discovered in an old cookbook published by the Ladies’ Axillary to our local Canadian Legion Branch. I don’t know the publication date, but my guess would be that it was put together sometime in the 1960’s. In any event, until I finish my cleaning and get around to some serious cooking I would like to share with you what I think is a Recipe for Life.
