We enjoyed a vacation recently, and guess what. I bought two new cookbooks! I bought a Southern Cookbook at an old drug store in a little town in Kentucky. It was still used as a drugstore and soda shop.
They had great milk shakes and Charles had a banana split with real ice cream and all the trimmings.
After visiting friends near Nashville, Tenn., we toured the old Ruyman Theater where the old Grand Ole Opery was held. We had attended the opery nearly 60 years ago.
We also toured the Space museum in Huntsville, Ala. It was very interesting. Just imagine all the items we use everyday that came about with the space program. We don’t think about that when we use the microwave every day, and what about those disposable diapers?
Of course, I always have to stop at several antique shops
I found a cookbook that was put out by the Home Demonstration clubs of Virginia. It’s copyright date is 1946.
This fried apple recipe is from that book:
Wash tart apples and slice (with skins on) in thin slices. Fry in bacon fat, covering the pan until apples are tender, than add brown sugar and white sugar to taste. The brown sugar gives the delicious flavor; the white sugar makes the apples brown quickly. Add more grease if necessary to prevent sticking.
Well, back to the other cookbook.
