The photo is my son and myself. Now days you can get a photo made to look old like this one. This photo was taken when this was the new look.

Harry S Truman was president when I was born and world war II had ended. I grew up in a time when lunch was put in a brown paper bag and a sandwich was wrapped with wax paper. There was no such thing as pantyhose, we wore stockings that attached to the rubbery clippy things that attached to the girdle. Convenience stores were not common and when we took a trip we packed a picnic basket because many places did not have fast food. Highways had places to pull over and stop, some with picnic tables.

Grandma Donna Oatmeal with Tart Cherry Butter Sauce

November 26, 2012
It all depends if you like Tart
GrandChip says "This oatmeal doesn't lay down, it reaches up and slaps you".
 Well I don't know about that and you can make it less tart if you don't mind adding sugar.
So here is this easy recipe for Grandmas Tart Cherry butter sauce.
One can of Tart Cherries ( I use Cherries packed in water) Nothing else is added
One Tablespoon maple syrup
One Tablespoon Molasses
Two Tablespooons Butter
Place the cherries with water in a sauce pan and add the maple syrup and molasses.  You can reserve some of the water from the can if you want to make this thicker.  Bring the cherries, maple syrup and molassses to a boil, turn down and let simmer for about 10 minutes while you are cooking the oatmeal.  Then add the two tablespoons of butter, remove from heat and stir in the butter.
That is all there is to it, place the oatmeal in your dish, and spoon the Tart Cherry Butter over the oatmeal.  Ummmm some more good....
