|1923 Ad for the Bird of Paradise pattern|
Cooking vintage recipes ofttimes involves more prep than the modern "stick it in the oven and go" or "just add water" ready made stuff available in stores. It is indeed a labor of love and if you're going to pour your heart and soul into making something why just serve it the hectic way? You know what I'm talking about because we are all guilty of it, eating dinner in the living room in front of the TV warranting a rip-roaring case of indigestion as we are assaulted by the opinion-mongering that passes for the news of the day. We all have a dining room, perhaps you've even seen yours? That table is not a convenient place for keys, mail and misc junk. It is a place where families used to sit and be together.
