 TRIVIA
The first and simplest of all pumpkin puddings made by the
Pilgrims, involved picking the pumpkin, washing it, hollowing
it out, filling it with cream or milk, and baking it whole.
This is what developed into pumpkin pie about 50 years after
that first Thanksgiving.

 ANCIENT & CLASSIC RECIPES
.................................................................
Capons in Castles, Diuersa Seruisa (1380)

"Take capons and . . . open the skin at the head and blow them
till the skin rise from the flesh, and remove the skin whole.
Boil chicken meat, egg yolks, and spices, and make a stuffing,
and fill the skin and parboil it, and put it on a spit and
roast it, basting it with egg yolks.
Take the capon's body and lard it, and roast it, and take
almond milk and wheat starch and make a batter, and baste the
roasting body, and serve it."

little kid and my mother made me eat it. And I'm President of
the United States and I'm not going to eat any more broccoli."
George Bush, Sr. 1990

Here is a story to go with the quote above, sent in by a friend.
"I was at the White House with the press corps, during part of
the Sr. Bush administration. When Bush arrived on Air Force One
for the initial inspection of the brand new never before used
747 there was a sign posted in the galley with a bunch of
broccoli and a slash through it and a note underneath it saying
'broccoli free zone.'"
