Colonial Dames of the 17th Century members gave a program to residents of the Texan Nursing and Rehab of Victoria East on Colonial Cooking on March 26. Images of cast iron pots in the fireplace, churning butter, drawing water from a well and colorful pictures of vegetables from the garden evoked memories and lively discussion among the group. Vintage utensils were reminders of the past as residents shared about their family's version of cooking and food. The program concluded with a reading of rules for children's behavior at the table and an individual serving of a corn cake for each resident.
