MMMMMMMMMeat. Who can get enough topics about mmmmmmmmeat? Carnivores, pay close attention to the 400 recipes for seafood, poultry, and meat salad dishes. This book comes before it was proper to stretch meat and after the World War II rationing of meat. It's all about the striated flesh, muscle, bones, organs, and the gnashing of canines, growling of a contented human animal. Heart disease and diabets? Pffft. Just pass it on to the next generation.

|As this is a Better Homes and Gardens book, there are usually the same pictures. If this is a new way with meatballs, why can't it be in color? Do you know how much fun I can have with a color photograph of ham raisin balls?|
|Are we learning to cook or how to perform a heart transplant? This isn't going to deter any carnivore. Sissies should be come herbivores if they don't like it.|
|Exactly what part of the turkey does this come from?|
|In case you ever needed to know how to cook an opossum. Or maybe you will find one dead on the side of the road and just need to cook it? Better tie those legs together. It's uncouth for an opossum to be open legged at any time.|
|Or just a myriad of hanging wieners with das sweet and das hot sauce.|
|Cheeseburger Pie. The ground beef, catsup (not ketchup), herbs and spices are a gut bomb. Add that greasy looking crust and pickle garnish for a full blown shit fest.|
|I can't say if the busy hostess wants her guests to turn their heads in appreciation, shock, or disgust. If it turns heads, then it must be a success. It can't be because someone is gagging at the sight of pimentos and cornucopia-rolled salami.|
|Ranch Round Steak with a very orange sauce and a fork that has been around since lead was a viable metal.|
The interesting thing about this post was that it also might not have been published. If I had not inadvertently bought a second copy at a Goodwill last week, I would have ignored this book like it was one that was already used or that I had no blog material. Funny how things work out. And now I have two copies of this book.
