How often do you talk to someone at work and they are bragging about their wonderful dinner of grilled cheese and soup they had last night? Some of you may hear it and I have a few friends that love to cook but mostly I hear about where everyone goes out to eat. We do go out to eat every now and then this last weekend my husband and I went to one of our favorite hamburger places that serves sweet potato fries I love them and you dip them in this special butter and my husband even said we totally need to break the deep fryer out but our baked sweet potato fries are great too we were just caught up in the moment! Because of the ease of eating out but is it really that easy first you have to get in your car and go somewhere and then you have to spend your money in gas to get there and then quite often you have to wait and then sometimes the service isn’t even all that good but sometimes its just great and no dishes the temptation is great!
So what was Alice Brady cooking in the kitchen with Mrs. Brady a very unrealistic portrayal of the American household.
Well we know for sure she was cooking pork chops and applesauce 😉
I used to have a huge box of recipes from the 70’s and some of the favorites were:
egg foo young
pork chops, mashed potatoes, and applesauce
Beef Tips and Noodles
I guess it all depends on what you consider a dinner classic. I consider eggs and bacon a classic personally. What do you consider a dinner classic? I don’t mean fancy or “fru fru” I am talking about those daily grind meals when you are exhausted and you want to feed your family a healthy wholesome nutritious meal!
The next time you are just flat-out exhausted try to muster up the strength to put together something that isn’t fast food but slower food. One of my faves is beefaroni and one of my recipes which is so simple is just…noodles, tomato sauce I canned over the summer, hamburger or turkey burger and some italian seasoning. A one pot dish wonder!
