Grandmother’s Pantry – E

In Grandmother’s Pantry I found…. Yes, in the “trunk” version of this game “elephant” and “eagle” were common.

Call me fussy — but I don’t care to eat either of those animals. (Okay, I’ve seen the recipe for elephant stew, but really, how many people are coming to dinner?)

The letter does give us a few other choices. The colorful eggplant comes to mind. I went looking for an eclair, but the supermarket bakery did not have any that day. So once again, I found myself going very conventional.

Eggs, chicken eggs, are a staple in most American kitchens. Good source of protein. Versatile. Boiled, fried, scrambled, or poached they make a fine dish for breakfast, lunch, or supper. And they are in important ingredient in many recipes. This handsome pair ended up next to last Friday’s dates in cookies.
