But It’s So Much More To Me!
I was fortunate enough to grow up knowing my great grandma. I use to tell her she was going to live to be 100, well she made it to a month shy of 94.
I was lucky enough to have her around to hold and rock my three babies.
Anne Sybl Peterson was born October 31, 1889. She was one of the biggest influences is my life. I was named after my grandma Wanda and great grandma Anne, that’s why I go by both names.
Truly some of my favorite memories are spending time with her. She taught me about sewing, she made most all of my doll clothes and barbie clothes.
She even made some of my favorite nightgowns for my own children. She taught me to play cards and we would sit and play crazy eight or gin rummy for hours. She always had some goodies on hand to have a tea party. One of her talents was that she could read tea leaves, so we always had a fun time with that. She bought my first piano and the first song she taught me was, “Long, long ago”. She could play by ear and told me stories of when she was young her parents took her to “Concerts in the Park”. When they got home she could sit down at her piano and play all the songs. She also taught me the lullaby’s that I sang to my babies and now to my grandchildren. I like to think I’m who I am today because of her. I try to be the kind of grandmother that she was.
Great Grandma’s Butterscotch Pie is her recipe and it’s DELICIOUS. Don’t let the butterscotch fool you, I think it tastes more like caramel, it reminds me of Creme Brule. My son James, the Chef, came over the other morning and we had a fun time making one. So give it a try, it’s a perfect pie for Thanksgiving Dinner or Christmas Dinner.
