Try This For Dinner

Bean Loaf with Tomato Sauce

Honey Dressing for Fruit Salads

2 egg yolks
1/3 cup strained honey
1/3 cup vinegar
pinch of salt
whites of 3 eggs

Beat egg yolk softly, add the honey, salt and vinegar. Cook in a double boiler until it thickens. Beat with egg beater
as it thickens in the boiler so that it will be smooth. Cool slightly. Fold in the stiffly beaten whites. Garnish with canned cherries.

Apple Brown Betty

Place alternate layers of chopped juicy apples and browned bread crumbs in greased baking dish having some crumbs on the bottom. Add cinnamon and
a little molasses or syrup to each layer of apples. Pour 2 cups of hot water equally over all. Bake for one hour. Serve with carmel sauce made from syrup.

Not all recipes were included with there suggestions, I guess one really needed to know how to cook back then.
