To Grandmother’s House We Go

It was always a treat to go to Grandma and Grandpa Thayer’s (Edith Rose Kelble & Frank Eugene). Grandpa’s lap was always ready and Grandma’s cookie jar was always full. Only it wasn’t a cookie jar – it was a blue enamel roaster. There were sugar, molasses, oatmeal and, sometimes, mincemeat cookies. We never knew what kind until we opened the lid. She made homemade doughnuts, too. I remember one year that we made taffy there and we had to go outside to pull it in the cold.
We usually had Thanksgiving dinner there. Turkey and all the trimmings. The gravy was always wonderful. Grandma had a way with it. We always had homemade pie for dessert – mincemeat, pumpkin and/or apple. The dining room table had a number of leaves and could be opened to accommodate all of us.
