Marge - a 70-something product reviewer near Seattle WashingtonAbout Marge

Marge is the  70-something mom to five adult children, the youngest is over 40. She the grandmother of many, and great-grandmother to four.  Marge lost her husband (Connie’s father) in 1988 and currently lives in a mother-in-law apartment with her middle daughter’s family and her dog Bella.

Marge is an accomplished sewer and quilter and helps Connie with her business. When she’s not out buying material to add to the enormous stash she already has, she’s hanging out with her tuba-playing grandson. She also packs, ships, cleans up, and helps with the year-end tax preparation for Connie’s business…Connie greatly appreciates her help!

Marge loves to travel and has gone on several cruises, including the Disney cruise, and many trips to Disneyland and Disney World. She’s also visited New York and Las Vegas.

Marge and Connie get together to do Investment Cooking (OAMC) occasionally, but it’s just as likely Marge will do the shopping and Connie the cooking. It’s a great way to save money and it’s fun cooking together.  Marge and Connie don’t always agree on the ingredients (Connie is a vegetarian who likes mushrooms and Marge won’t touch them) but they’ve made  some fantastic meals for the freezer.  They’ll share many of their Once a Month Cooking recipes here with you.
