Freeze Dried Laundry . . . .
While I was growing up Monday was always laundry day.
During the winter the windows were steamed over
with condensation which meant Mother was making
beans for dinner. She would also make cinnamon twists for dessert.
I didn't like beans too much but I always ate them because
I knew our house was not a short order cafe.
Now, the twists were another story!
I think that was the beginning of my carb addiction!
We did not have a clothes dryer, so this meant
even in cold weather the laundry was hung outside
on the clothesline. Of course when it was 32 degrees or colder
the clothes froze on the line.
As you might imagine laundry day was hard work in those days.
And for 5 people that's a lot of laundry.
that was sitting on the floor furnace.
Tuesday was ironing day, but that's a story for another Monday.
