Quick Cooking 101: Presto breakfast and soup

April 25, 2008

Well, now that I’ve stopped beating myself up for being less than the perfect Suzie Homemaker, it’s back to the Presto Cookbook (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, click here).

Gotta love these old cookbooks. The photography is so appetizing. Let’s see – I haven’t had breakfast yet (unless you count the nougat bar with jujubes…) so perhaps I can find something tasty here:

Um, didn’t realise that “mucilage” was one of the food groups. Hmm.

Well, maybe it’s actually time for lunch. How about some soup? It’s chilly today…


Hmm… blood and bile with swirls of pus? Nah…but let me see if I can find anything that appeals within the section…

– Oyster Chowder
– Southern Okra Gumbo
– Gumbo… maybe… but with oysters? Nope.

To top it off, the Soup and Chowder section is in that mysterious land where any spice save Salt and Pepper apparently fear to tread.

Sigh. I’ve now completely lost my appetite. Perhaps this was some kind of secret 1950s diet aid? Is that how they all stayed so skinny?

See you Monday!
