Grandma's Kitchen

Dec. 6, 2012 | 0 comments


2 cups sifted, all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1-1/4 cup shortening

1 cup white sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs, well beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups coconut

2 cups corn flakes

Cream shortening; add the sugars gradually. Beat till light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla.

Add dry ingredients, coconut and cornflakes.

*The recipe card for this is old, beat up, and stained. The recipe is great though! I got it in 1968 when John was in Vietnam. I was living alone with our baby in my hometown.

I would take Grandma and my cousin, Tory, all over the area to see the places she remembered as a kid, I had a little car and we would pile in and just go for the day. This was the summer Grandma cherished the most, as Grandpa had died at Christmas; she and I kept one another going most of 1968.

You have to wonder if God does things on purpose. He sure kept us together. I also believe when John was shot in the head and nearly died in the TET Invasion of Saigon, Grandpa was there, and held his hand on John's head so he could live.

This will be 46 Christmases' John and I have been together. When he was shot, it would have been that very first Christmas of our marriage. God got us through that, and all else.

I know lots of you have worries about money, kids, health, etc. I do too. Still, it does seem, if we have faith, things do work out in the end. Please hang unto that Hope!

Merry Christmas! Linda Muir.
