Okay, who the hell allowed South Louisiana to experience the freaking 50s?????
I pulled out my grandmother’s cherished River Road Recipes with all its spots, stains and yellowed pages. All I wanted was a vegetable dish to go with my cajun roasted turkey. I wasn’t sure what I was looking for, but hell if I expected to find almost every recipe calling for canned mushroom soup, canned peas, canned string beans, and–for a special touch if you want something fancier than crushed potato chips–crushed cheese crackers! And whatever you do, don’t forget the shredded Cracker Barrel!
I flipped to the copyright.
How far back do I have to go to predate convenience foods?
So, I’m now turning to the Yankees. Fannie Farmer, please, to the rescue?
Otherwise, meh, I’ll just find something on the internets.
And a side splash of Jameson’s to get me through it.
Bah. Humbug. (Hic.)
