That list gives me a giggle. Neither my Saami, Swedish farmor nor my Danish mormor ever served me any of the dishes on that list. They might have made, roast beef hash or Split Pea and Sausage Soup. I am 99.99$% certain that they never made any of the other dishes on that list.

My issue with buying books from Amazon for Kindle is that you don't "own" a copy of the book. If Amazon decides that they don't want to carry it anymore, it will disappear from your device. It has happened to my husband.

I love meringue. Others like whipped cream.....so if I make a meringue then....others can give me their meringue in exchange for whipped cream. I may be on to something here!

Straight to you from the 1950s diner menu, salmon cakes, mashed potatoes, and buttery Brussel sprouts as tonight's blue plate special! I wish I had an ice box pie for dessert!

Love that those plates have dividers... reminds me of the grade school cafeteria. Food never touched other food - which was probably needed as I recall a lot of sloppy menu items. Most despised lunch (for me) and all on the same plate:

Beanie weanies (chopped hot dogs in canned, tepid baked beans)
coleslaw
"nilla" pudding
served with a slice of white bread on top.

I'm rather squeamish over some foods touching another. My mother bought me my first "adult-sized" divider plate thinking it would embarrass me. Not a bit. I was delighted with it. I have a few divider plates and use them with pride. Most of my family and friends think I am "touched" over my desire to keep my foods from running together. However, I have one friend who understands perfectly. We simply know when it is okay to touch and when it is not. Wonderful to meet such a brilliant mind. ;)
