Menu treasure chest...

This was featured today on one of my not to be missed CBS TV shows..."Sunday Morning".

I knew right away everyone here would love spending time with this.

Menu's from the 1850's through the 2000's.

Hours of "foodie fun".......enjoy!

It's one of the best things on TV!! I've been watching it for eons, way back when Charles Kuralt (still miss him) was the host. It's on at 6:30 am here, so these days I record it to watch later each "Sunday Morning". What a truly brilliant production, each and every week.

And if you miss it on Sunday, NatGeo repeats it during the week. I forget the times.
