Sunday Dinner


Suggested menu for a November Sunday:

Scotch Broth
Pork Chops in Casserole
Baked Apples in Ramekins
Turnips - Potatoes - Boiled Onions
Lettuce Salad
Washington Pie
Coffee

The recipe for Washington Pie is given verbatim: ***Beat 3 eggs for 1 minute, add 1 1/2 cups sugar and beat 5 minutes. Add 1 cup flour measured after sifting and beat 5 minutes. Add 1/2 cup hot water, another cup of flour which has been sifted with 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and beat 1 minute. Bake slowly in a deep pan. Cut in squares and cover with whipped cream sweetened and flavored.

*** indicates that the recipe is copied from the original cookbook and I have not, myself, tried it out. Caveat baker. Woman's World Book of Tested Sunday Dinners, copyright 1927, Chicago, Illinois

And Monday dinner? I can't think what to cook. It's a cool day ( for So Cal) and I am feeling that attraction to hibernation foods: Potatoes, stews, soups, baked bread.
In answer to your email: I think it would be fun to see those craft mags... I have none from Japan. I love buttons and I can find many uses for trims, bias tape and ribbons. I am going to Google "Tat." What do you sew for your nieces?
Do I detect blog changes? I think you are off to a good start. I'll be by again soon.

Oh my goodness... tatting! You make lace! That looks amazing, and like it takes a great deal of concentration. You will have to show us some samples.

Yes, I needle-tat. I hope to post a couple of patterns for Christmas snowflakes this month.
