  1. Happy Friday to you as well!

    Lunch looks like it has a good bit of starch in it, no?

    I’d save the egg and tomato for lunch and put in a salad… and save room for that sponge cake for after dinner, to coat my interior.

    HEY! That sort of rhymes!! :o)

    1. Gold star well deserved! What strikes me is that these meals are really well-balanced and full. For breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I have to wonder how more people weren’t overweight, and then I get to thinking that they probably didn’t have all of the processed junk we tend to eat now in between meals. I will admit to having my office stash of granola bars and trail mix.


  2. Lemon ice and other ices were very popular in the first quarter of the 20th century. It was a very special dessert. It would be made in an ice cream hand crank maker. They would also make ices with shaved ice mixed with sweet fruit sauce.

    1. I’d couldn’t imagine making it just for a luncheon. It seems like quite a bit of work. I seem to remember coming across a recipe for an ice that was similar to the process above, but slightly different. I remember thinking at the time that it seemed too simple for the desired outcome… Can’t remember where, though. Hmm…
