Desert Sand Mica

Whatever, just crash it Bob...


A book I came across:

Cooking with Helen McCully Beside You, 1970.

Oh my god. Isn’t that creepy? It sounds like Helen’s well dead and her spirit is following you around the kitchen holding pot holders that appear to be floating in mid-air.
Here recipes are all about timing. Lots of it. She uses the absolute most time consuming recipes and techniques possible. Each recipe starts out with: Your Cooking Schedule”. Things you have to do the day before, the night before, that morning, and all day long.
Stuff the chicken the night before. Get up and start the potatoes that have to cook all day and be turned ever 90 minutes. Noon, start the dessert. Afternoon, chicken in the oven, blah blah blah. Tons of tasks in between too. Cutting the onions just so…handling the tomatoes properly...

It’s hilariously tyrannical.
