I loved this book! This family was getting ready for their rich aunt to arrive but they were so busy they forgot to put the pepper in the pot. Then momma remembers while she is scrubbing clothes. She calls to each family member and asks them to do this task but each is working hard and cannot leave what they are doing. Finally momma is done and decides she can put the pepper in the pot. Problem is, each of her family members thinks no one has done it so they all do. When their rich aunt arrives they serve up the soup but they are in for a surprise. No one knows what to do but the supposedly rich, snooty aunt, she pulls on an apron and they all make omelets...without pepper.
