Thurs. March 6, 1930. I got a letter from Wyce, today. I talked to mother this evening. She said that Grandma was not very well. She is staying all night tonight.
Fri. March 7, 1930. We decided today to have a picnic Monday. I came home this evening.
Sat. March 8, 1930. I came to town this afternoon with George. His car rides fine. I surely was surprised last night when I found out the folks had a radio. They only have it out for trial.
Sun. March 9, 1930. We stayed home today. Doll….Pg. 30— Grandma’s Day Journal– My Hunter Family Collection
Picnic time! I wonder what delicious foods they would have taken along?? In the farm belt in 1930, I’d bet there were a few staples that made the cut. Maybe a bologna or ham sandwich. potato salad, homemade pickles & some old-fashioned rice pudding. If you were real lucky, someone might fix up some homemade ice cream to top off an apple pie. I could sure go for some of grandma’s cookies about now!
Have you looked at picnic food ideas lately? What about the utensils and linens you’d take along to make it special? This week in Inez’s Clippings, I have something to share this week that belonged to my ‘Gammie’ that I’m pretty certain is the type of article that would have went along on any picnic. It’s a flour sack towel appliqued with this pattern once belonging to my great grandmother Reed.
And just for fun, another item that would be beneficial in the sunshine….
And the best part about that kerchief……..it just Sold! Shall I make another?? Hope you’ll come back next week for more of Inez’s day journal.
