Saucepans and the Single Girl
This is another gem from Ernestine, from 1965. The authors, Jinx and Judy, apparently lived together after graduation in an apartment. Jinx married the man downstairs after she served him stroganoff. The bookflap actually gives his job title - manager at Smothers Brothers. Judy married another man and the bookflap said she lured him with her lasagna. Wow. I'd love to know how these ladies are doing now!
Here are a couple variations on hamburgers:
Scramburgers: When you have to eat and run
Broil the patty 8 - 12 minutes. top a cooked potato with melted butter and seasoned salt or regular salt and pepper; broil 8 minutes. Broil canned cling peach or pear halves or pineapple chucks or slices for 8 minutes until golden.
Notice how cleverly everything works out if you like your hamburger rare? (Oh boy.)

With the hamburger you can broil some banana halves for about 4 minutes on each side. When the banana is ready to be turned, begin broiling 2 pieces of bacon - 2 minutes on each side. Now put on that stack of ukulele records and you will all but feel the trade winds wafting through the palm trees.
Um. I'm laughing pretty hard. Does that count for big winds?
Yesterday I was charmed by the audience at Friendship Village where I went to give my Cakes talk. We very much enjoyed discussing recipes. They really liked the red velvet sample and other treats I was able to find. It was a long day after my night shift at the library too, but well worth it.
