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.

Applesauce cake

September 27, 2011
Recipe Below
This is a very easy cake to make.  It is a simple cake, not too sweet, just right.  It is also Dairy Free, Egg Free and Peanut Free for those with food allergies.
1/2 Cup lite olive oil
1 Cup sugar
1 Cup chilled applesauce 
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teapoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Small amount of powdered sugar
There will be no mixer needed for this cake, just a medium size mixing bowl and a whisk.
Whisk together oil and sugar, then add applesauce and whisk together.  Stir in flour, baking soda, and cinnamon, give it another whisk.  Pour into a greased and floured 8" square pan or any kind of pan about that size.  I use a corningware pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes or until done.
Place on cooling rack and after you remove it from the pan and still slightly warm sprinkle small amount of powdered sugar.  Enjoy!
