One of my vivid memories of Wilton was a corn party your mother had. Mim purchased bushels of it, and then called all her friends to come over. Corn was the star. We ate far more than three ears each that day. Sweet and delicious. xxxooo Jeanie

Yes- it was usually cream cheese with thinly sliced cucumber. Whole grain sandwich bread was not on our menu in those days. But- rye bread was- fresh, warm, crusty, from the Village bakery - remember it? I used to finish off half the loaf before reaching home. They had that wonderful chocolate chip cake too. I remember you and I used to try to duplicate it, but could never figure out how to keep the chips from sinking to the bottom of the cake! The menu at your house was always much more interesting - always an adventure.....loved it ... so many years ago. xxxooo J.

Oh Ruth- I do remember those breakfasts at your house, mostly in Wilton, with your wonderful, elegant dad presiding at the head of the table. I remember his laugh and, yes, the Liederkrantz . I knew it was supposed to have a foul smell, but, oddly, I never found it objectionable. I always think about him whenever I come across a reference to that cheese, though of course that is not the only time I think about him, and your mom as well. Fond memories. Cheerio- Jeanie
