"Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived."
-Jean Luc Picard

It's all in your head...

I finally found and opened the box with the rest of my cookbooks today. Whoot! (We have lots of books still in boxes because we got rid of some of our particleboard bookcases and haven't yet found suitable replacements in our price range.) Anyhoo, I found a recipe I just have to share with you. This cookbook originally belonged to my great-aunt and after she passed away, my late grandmother received it. The cookbook is called The Household Searchlight Recipe Book and this is the eighth edition which came out in 1936.



There's also one for headcheese. For those not aware of what headcheese is all about, the ingredients are "1 Hog's head, 1 Hog's tongue, Sage and Chili Powder, Salt and Pepper."

I love it.

Particularly the fact that they contain white sauce.

I'm having way too much fun reading these recipes!

The pages before this has three different recipes for pigs feet, a "casserole of tongue" and "baked heart". Wow, just wow!

Oooh, Hairball, could you send me the recipes for pigs feet and tongue? And are there any recipes for ears. Someone has "Just Asked Rosie" for a recipe with ears.
