“Love, like a chicken salad or restaurant hash, must be taken with blind faith or it loses its flavor.”
Helen Rowland (1876-1950)
“'Een in our hashes live their wanted fires' - as the poetical cook said when they said her hashed mutton was not hot enough.”
Edward Lear, English artist, writer; 'literary nonsense' (1812-1888)
“HASH, x. There is no definition for this word -- nobody knows what hash is.”
Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914)
'The Devil's Dictionary' (1911)
“There is nothing worse for the health, or for the palate, than a poor hash, while a good hash is not only a favorite dish in most families, but an essential article of economy and convenience.”
Catharine E. Beecher
'Miss Beecher’s Domestic Receipt-Book' (1846)
“As to those things called hashes, commonly manufactured by unwatched, untaught cooks, out of the remains of yesterday's repast, let us not dwell too closely on their memory, - compounds of meat, gristle, skin, fat, and burnt fibre, with a handful of pepper and salt flung at them, dredged with lumpy flour, watered from the spout of the tea-kettle, and left to simmer at the cook's convenience while she is otherwise occupied.”
Christopher Crowfield (Harriet Beecher Stowe)
'House and Home Papers' (1865)
