Respect Your Elders

Until I run out of them, I’m going to share with you recipes from my Great-Grandma Charlotte, who clipped and pasted recipes with neurotic precision, keeping them in a small binder so that her great-granddaughter Sunday could make fun of her long after she’d passed.


I love this woman — even having never met — and not just because she spelled macaroni “maccaroni’s” (and meant pasta) and salad “sallade”.  To be fair, she was Scottish.

A caveat: most of the recipes in her book are perfectly normal.  But then there are the ones that aren’t.  Friends, I’d like to share with you New Wedding Ring Sallade Salad:



It’s worth noting that the recipe sounds really tasty, right up into the last sentence.

    At least it wasn’t miracle whip! :)

    P.s I love your blog, I just never had the balls to tell you so. Keep on writing!

    In truth: few things make me gag like Miracle Whip does. I can’t even — I don’t even know what to say to that.

    P.S. I’m deeply pleased you grew some balls! I’ll keep writing as much as I am able. Things are a little topsy-turvy for me lately, but luckily I still keep eating food and carrying a camera.
