There were so many great things about going to Grandma and Grandpa’s when I was a child. I would sit at the table in their eat-in kitchen while grandma was cooking something. The rainbows from the prisms she had in her window would dance across the walls. I could look out the window and see the tree that I loved to climb. Grandma would keep a stack of Mini Pages there for us to do. When we moved Grandma and Grandpa into assisted living last fall, I found the crayon box with my name on it from when I was a child. There were fewer colors then. But regardless of what my kids think, the world was not black and white.
The Mini Pages were, though. I found some things from the Mini Pages on the back of some of the recipes. Because I am unsure about copyright laws and all the stuff that goes along with it, I am providing a link to the the archived Mini Pages from 1981 about Thanksgiving. The Mini Pages were this amazing educational tool. There was information, puzzles, and recipes. (I’ve made some of those recipes, the feature hot dogs pretty heavily).
