Life During the Life of Laura Ingalls Wilder…and Laura’s Gingerbread Cake

The Osage are considered the indigenous tribe of my own state of Missouri. Just outside Cuba, Missouri, a memorial has been erected to honor these people who had come before. As they lived and moved around the area, they made trails, their own “highways”. Eventually those paths were paved over and became the concrete highways of mid-America. Where this memorial stands, US 66 became one of the most fabled highways in America. Just next to the memorial is Interstate 44 which replaced a large portion of the iconic Route 66.
