Did you ever have a wig? If you lived through the â70s, and are female, you probably did. My oldest daughter called me the other evening and the subject of wigs came up. âWhere did we get those things?â she asked.
Wigs were a very popular fashion accessory then; you could buy them just about everywhere but the post office for a few dollars. Every beauty shop in existence had them for sale, as did Pfiefferâs and Gus Blass (remember them?), J. C. Penneyâs, and Woolworthâs.
Through the years a number of local people have asked for my motherâs spaghetti recipe.
Thatâs almost like trying to find the proverbial needle in the haystack.
Mamma didnât have real recipes, though she had cookbooks holding all kinds of scribblings on sheets she had stuck inside them.
This past week I made an attempt at detailing how to make her wonderful spaghetti. My effort was included in the Grits & Grace page that featured Courier employeesâ recipes.
