Eat at Our House -- Apr. 1, 2009

St. Marys Journal Argus

Looking through some old columns I came across the following and found the information rather interesting and hope you do also. This column was written in the month of April, the 18th day of 1962. A quiz to play with your kids."We had a merry time this past week trying to see how many names we could recall that people from their local town or city were called. For instance, Londoners came from London. Detroiters were from Detroit, but you can also be a Michigander from Michigan. Haligonians are from Halifax. Mancusians from Manchester. Everyone knows that Parisians are from Paris but did you know that Neopolitans are from Naples. When we lived in the west we liked the snooty sound of Torontonians from Toronto but felt sorry for the Winnipegers from Winnipeg. Next is a tongue twister, Glaswegians are not from outer space but good old Glasgow. The Beatles were all Glaswegians.After all the fun the middle son (then in his teens) suggested the name for people living in St. Marys should come from its original name of the town Little Falls. Thus we should be called "Little Drips." In the same column I reported that the man at our house had the job of cooking the porridge every morning, while I was busy looking after getting the kids up, and he said he didn't mind the job, but felt once in awhile he would like to sit down and be served an "all-out" big elegant breakfast. Funny I couldn't even remember that he did this really great job, as I always maintained he didn't even know where the stove was. Things we forget, and then tried to remember when I started spoiling him again and always made his breakfast. I guess it was after the kids grew up and left home.As it was closing in on Easter Sunday that year, I put the following recipe in the paper for a "all-out" fabulous breakfast for the man in your house on Easter morning. This recipe could be a main dish for lunch or dinner. We forget how nutritious eggs are, giving us 18 per cent (per two eggs), our daily requirement of protein plus calcium, iron, phosphorus, vitamins A, B1, B2, B12, and D.Eggs Mornay6 tbsp. butter6 tbsp. flour1 3/4 cups milk1 cup chicken broth4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, diced1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese1/4 cup sherry1/2 tsp.
