What is Home?
What does it mean to us?
A place of peace- rest- affection?
Of gaiety- and laughter?
The place we love- reverence- yearn for?
For which we are ready to work, and plan and strive?
Or does it mean confusion, inharmony?
Hour after hour of petty quarrels, differences?
Frowns and fault-finding?
Injustice and misunderstanding?
Home is first of all within ourselves.
The most stately of mansions, the richest draperies,
rarest rugs, furnishings will not make a home-
Unless there is Peace- Stillness- Unselfishness- within
Home is not bounded by the four walls of a house.
It is the heart of Life.
To it Life comes.
In it Life is nurtured, ideals born, knowledge gained.
Upon it the strength of the nation is built.
It is the cradle of World Progress-
-An excerpt from Ida Bailey Allen’s
New Modern Cook Book
published in 1924-
Not until we start to have our own families can we really appreciate how special our extended families truly are. How wonderful our family traditions are, and how important it is for us to enjoy them and preserve them for the next generation.
The video of Grandma making her Sausage and Peppers speaks for itself, so I will leave you to watch it…but I will print the full recipe in my next post.
Below is the video of Grandma making her Sausage & Peppers. Be sure to watch all three parts:)
Gotta love cooking with Grandma!
