Was doing a little picking yesterday (those who watch the show will understand)
came across a cook book and picked it (free)
opened it this am just to see what it was .
title is, Recipes on parade, 2000 world wide favorites of Military Officers wives.
The best part is !
The 3rd page has 3 recipes,
#1, Mrs. Lyndon B Johnson's recipe for Barbecued Spare Ribs
#2. Mrs. John F. Kennedy's recipe for Beef Stroganoff
#3. Mrs . Robert S McNamara's recipe for Beef Bourguignon
I know some of you young folks don't understand why i get excited over this ,But I'm sure the oldtimers (like me) do.
I have sat here this am and looked through this book and can see that
even in the military in 63 they used the cheaper cuts of beef . Round steak /roast ,
rump roast, flank steak and lots of ground beef. A little pork, Lots of veal and lamb.
casseroles were the rage at the time..
Also recipes from the other parts of the world where we had troops stationed or were our allies.
Philipines , south america, china, india , japan ,armenia, greece, libya, morocco , iran , turkey, austria , england france ,germany , holland,hungary ireland italy sweden spain and russia.
Great pick IMHO!
