For Dinner Tonight

Filed under: Uncategorized — fehlhaber @ 2:03 pm

I loved this recipe in the paper yesterday –

Start cooking those noodles, first dropping a bouillon cube into the noodle water. Brown the garlic, onion and crumbled beef in the oil. Add the flour, salt, paprika and mushrooms, stir, and let it cook five minutes while you light a cigarette and stare sullenly at the sink.

— Recipe for “Skid Road Stroganoff,” from “The I Hate to Cook Book” (Harcourt, Brace, 1960), by Peg Bracken.  Her obituary, very entertaining, is here.

Other funny food writing was the mom of two teenagers getting an Alice Waters refrigerator makeover.
