Just look at them, would you? Newspaper clippings, cutouts from magazines pasted to index cards, a splattered list of handwritten ingredients. What a special surprise!
Kat said she found it at an antique store and she felt “morally obligated to get it” for us.
These were not hyperbolic words on Kat’s part. Moral Obligations are nothings to trifle with. She knows.
She went on to say– well, text but “say,” “text,” these days, what’s the diff?
I thought you would give it a good home. I feared someone would get it and throw the recipes away to just use the box. [It is a nice box.] Got to preserve that Americana, ya know?
She pointed Mr. Big Food to a special recipe she thought he would “get a kick out of.” Here it is:
1/4 teaspoon monosodium glutamate
MSG. a.k.a.: ‘Accent’
We LOL’ed and :-)’ed over that. To quote Mr. Big Food, “Accent– monosodium glutamate… Don’t fear it.”
But seriously. That recipe sounds pretty darned good, doesn’t it? Fry up some bacon to render a couple of tablespoon’s worth of fat, … add a slice of warm beer bread and a cup of hot joe and you’ve got and especially good Saturday breakfast!
What a special surprise! Thanks, Kat!
