Welcome to the 1930’s Homemaker's Kitchen.
I am bringing to you once again advice from the early 1930’s recipe book that I have inherited from my mother. I’ve tried copying my photos and then scanning them, neither turning out to be very brag worthy. But it is what it is.
If you are inclined to be interested in the history and the lifestyle of this eras homemaker I think you’ll enjoy it…. Let’s start with a few pictures:
Cut off says: Cook the bacon 10 min. in frying pan.
Now there you have it!
What do you think? Have you ever heard of shad roe or alligator pears? I know haven’t. And I feel certain that it would be nearly impossible for me to get either of these meals finished in 20-25 minutes! At least in any kind of edible condition.
I have to confess that my admiration for the 1930’s homemaker continues to increase the more I read from this recipe book. I’m thinking that Mabel Claire (the author) is the embodiment of the Psalms's ‘virtuous woman.’
Uh-huh. And you know now why I'm hiding this book from my hubby!
If you read through this please tell me your thoughts and reflections on the writer or her recipes. It's so fun to hear what you are all thinking too!
