Perhaps you have a copy lounging about gathering dust among your cookbook collection...just thought it might widen my search if I harnessed the networking power of the blogosphere.
My fingers are crossed in hope that we might collectively find a copy.
If you know of a reasonably priced copy or find one in your travels I would be most grateful if you gave me the opportunity to buy it from you.
Salvation Army has oodles of books but not one of Susan's sat waiting for me on the shelf....
however I did not leave empty handed.
Do you know what these are?
Ironstone pudding molds.
Do you remember having a tomato aspic or a jellied salad ?
My granny and aunts used to whip these up with regularity when we had family gatherings.
I loved watching the way that they wiggled on our plates.
The women in my family came from strong stock.
Cooking was in their genes.
I wonder looking back if anything much would have happened in the kitchen if it were not for the women.
The men did a great job chopping wood and pouring drinks but honestly the women cooked the food, set the table and put it out for all to enjoy.
They got dressed up and invited us to dine.
Does anyone still make these dishes?
Loving white and vintage ironstone the way I do I will find a use for these molds.
Are you planning anything exciting for your sweetheart on Valentine's Day?
If you could envision the perfect date what would it look like?
I'd fancy some french fries and a few glasses of champagne...
I have a bottle of Tattinger waiting...
our son is having a birthday and we plan to celebrate this weekend.
Grand kiddies and all perhaps we'll pop the cork....
