Mother worked all day in a factory assembling light fixtures, and this was something simple enough that her thirteen-year-old daughter (me) could make for the two of us for supper. My dad worked evening shift at a cardboard box factory, so he wasn't there to eat with us. Mother was tired at night, and very happy to get out of cooking.
Besides, she had a lot of people to call on the phone.As I was saying, my mother never made spaghetti in her life so far as I know.
I looked at the 1934 recipes for spaghetti and was amazed at the ingredients that were lacking.
No wonder Mother never made spaghetti; back in her younger days, spaghetti wasn't good. Unless, of course, you were Italian and your family knew how to make the real thing.
