The Way to a Man's Heart...

So, back in July I announced I was going to be cooking from A Thousand Ways to Please a Husband to explore what prescriptive literature was telling Americans to eat when our domicile was built.  Here's what I made before I decided to eat less calories (for, like, a month) because my annual thyroid exam was coming up, which is kind of like not brushing your teeth for a year and then brushing, flossing and mouthwashing for the month leading up to a dentist's appointment.

Chapter XXX (August) - A Cool Summer Day
Pork Chops
Escalloped Potatoes
Baked Apples

Chapter XXXII (August) - Bettina Attends a Morning Wedding
Fried Chicken
New Potatoes
Creamed Peas

Chapter XLI (August) - Bettina Entertains State Fair Visitors
Cold Fried Chicken
Corn on the Cob
Chocolate Cookies (pictured below)

I'm in a bit of a rush because I have to go prepare tonight's dinner, but if you are interested in any of the recipes, just let me know!  This is probably my last post before Christmas, so I hope everyone has a wonderful vacation.  Don't forget: the contest starts soon!


  1. Great food. Thanks for the post. I love the title "A Thousand Ways to Please a Husband".

  2. My mouth is watering. Great dinner ideas, and top it all off with a cookie, oh yeah!

  3. That sounds like an awesome title for a book! I always floss at the last minute before the dentist, and then they ask me, "why are your gums bleeding? You need to floss more often."
