Lyn, peanut butter is now banned in US schools because so many children nowadays have a peanut allergy, and could die from as much as a speck of a nut in their systems.
My childhood food memories... making christmas cookies with my mom... eating the scraps of dough from in between the cutouts. still love plain sugar cookies!
My Aunt June would give us big soup spoons full of peanut butter for a snack. She called them "all-day suckers."
going out to dinner with Aunt Betty Low. She took the whole family out often, and we would choose "grown up food" like Shrimp de Jonghe or Lobster Tail or French Fried Shrimp.
eating sour cherries off the tree before they were ripe...... wonder why we liked them so much?
Making ravioli with Aunt Rachel Varchetto. She would wait until we got there to fill and seal them because she knew how much I liked to help. I was around seven.... still like to make ravioli.
Well, those are a few of my memories...
