Sauce la vinaigrette

I love how this description of how to make a vinaigrette. Make it your own!

You rub up the salt and pepper with a little vinegar, then add as much oil as you*please, with chopped parsley, shallot, gherkins, or capers, according to convenience or taste.

Fun and interesting reading there, GG! I looked through it quickly and saved it for more reading later. This was interesting...I expected to read a recipe for a sweetened cake. I love how they worded recipes back then and used what they had.

Valentine Shortcake.
Melt two tablespoonfuls butter and blend with two tablespoonfuls flour. Add one sixteen-ounce can noodle soup and stir until thickened. Add one and one-half cupfuls diced cooked pork or veal and cook until meat is thoroughly heated. Serve on this filling between the halves and on top of heart-shaped baking powder biscuit, garnishing with slices of stuffed Spanish olives. This make a delicious meat dish for the shortcake and is very easily prepared. Left-over pork or veal roast may be used.
