My thoughtful, wonderful mom came across and shared with me this cookbook from when she was a little girl. I will share the contents with you, as they are priceless. But first I have to share what R's reaction was to seeing this cookbook.
Background: I am cooking frantically to get dinner on the table. R is looking at this cookbook on the kitchen floor when I hear an emphatic, "UH-OH!" I immediately start wondering what G has gotten into now, since this is the most logical explanation for R's exclamation. I turn around to see nothing spilled or broken so I ask,
SPC: "R, why did you say 'UH-OH'?"
R: "Mommy, don't you see what is happening here?" (pointing to the cover of the cookbook above)
(pause for you to look at the cover)
SPC: "Umm, no."
R: "Mommy, that boy is eating raw eggs in that dough!!!"
SPC: (amazed and realizing R's incredible observation skills) "Yep...I hope he doesn't get a belly ache."
R: "Didn't his mommy tell him that he can't eat raw eggs?"
At this point I decided against a historical explanation about our agricultural system and the rise of salmonella in mass produced eggs. Instead I just said, "guess not!"
Life is sweet,
