Correction to book referenced below: it should
read a 19th century cookery book titled
The Frugal Housewife by Susannah Carter
from the 1823 published edition. I apologize.
Good Morning, Primmies -
For your A.M. enjoyment, here are some more snippets of a 19th century cookery book titled
Early American Cookery "The Good Housekeeper" by Sarah Josepha Hale. Note
the instructions she gives regarding how to
tell if meat is fresh when going to market. For
when we *sigh* and think we should have lived
in this quaint time compare this to going to
your local grocery store and picking up your
nicely chilled and shrink wrapped meat bundle:
O.K., now for those of you who enjoy your glass of wine, beer or cocktail hang on to your prim drawers:
Isn't this a hoot? And I did the editing at 4:30

I'm going to be doing some sampler research this morning and then we are off to the border of
MA and NY to bring Mr. Glen Oaks Jr., back
to his home. It's another 2 1/2 hours into upstate
NY for them to reach home from there. He's doing much better and has stopped coughing and isn't so very congested anymore. Papa Glen Oaks is also
on the mend and I so far have seemed to escape
with just the killer headache and some mild con-
gestion. I feel good today (knock on wood) and
need to make stops at the post office and the
vet before we take off. It's a nice ride when there isn't traffic and we meet at the outlets in Lee and
usually have a bite to eat together. Junior didn't want to go to bed last night and I'm sure it's because he knew it was his last night and he's going to miss being here. He's almost 14 so he can stay up kind of late on vacation. He transitions well when he has to get back to waking up early for school.
We had a really good visit with him and we'll miss him a lot.
I'll be back later tonight I think with that sampler
