Welcome August!

Today’s excerpt comes from a handy book entitled

What shall we have for dinner?

Selected and Arranged By Elizabeth O. Hiller

Unsure of publication date. The book is maybe late 1920s or 1940s.

Anyways, on to the important part: Dinner Menu Ideas for August.

August Dinner Menu Ideas 1920s

Love the variety of foods in each meal. I never think of small sides – you really get the sense of a balanced diet and seasonal foods.

What foods are you all currently enjoying in season?

I’m actually feeling the fish chowder for this Friday night family. And, how coincidental, pickles are my go-to green vegetable when I’m too lazy to even microwave frozen peas! Here I was sporting the August Dinner Menu before I even knew it was a thing.

My friends, enjoy the weekend~
