The 7 Best Cheap Whiskeys Under $40 via Gear Patrol

Always looking for that next, great tasting, deal! — Douglas
 
Too often, whiskey lists are compilations of fancy, limited-run bottles that are either impossible to track down or simply too expensive – usually both. After all, when there’s rent to pay and mouths to feed, people can’t always slap down hundreds of dollars on a bottle of hooch, regardless of its age or collectability. And truth be told, you don’t have to. There are still great deals to be had on unique and delicious bourbons, single malts and even Japanese bottles if you know where to look. But seeking out undervalued whiskey is not without risk – there’s a lot of nasty stuff out there. So avoid the swill and check out these fine bottles that deliver maximum bang for under 40 bucks.

Historical Cooking Books: Famous old receipts used a hundred years and more in the kitchens of the North and the South (1908) by Jacqueline Harrison Smith – 25 in a series

March 26th, 2019 Comments off

Archive.org has a host of old cookery books (from mid-19th to mid-20th Century) available in many formats and on a host of topics. I happened across a few in my Pinterest feed and gone completely down the rabbit hole in this treasure trove of information. Sure some ideas might be out of date, but you never know what you might find when you explore these books. I’ll be sharing more books as I find them in the coming weeks. –Douglas

INTRODUCTION.

The title of this book by itself conveys so much that any intro- duction to the many good things told in its pages seems superfluous. It certainly should not require any urging to induce all who can to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them.

“One hundred years ago and more” brings before us a delightful period in our country’s history, and recalls the generous, cordial feel- ings which prevailed among our ancestors — that ” open-handed spirit, irank and blythe, of ancient hospitality,” which made the homes of the New World all that a stranger could desire.

We may reconcile ourselves to the passing of ” the fugaceous hospitalities of the snuffbox ” as needing the powdered wig and three- cornered hat to justify them. What a genuine ring there is in the words of Washington, referring to Mount Vernon, when he said : ” T.et the hospitality of the house with respect to the poor be kept up; let no one go hungry away.” And the cordiality of Jefferson while living in Philadelphia is delightfully expressed in a letter to Richard Peters: “Call on me whenever you come to town, and if it should be about the hour of three, I shall rejoice the more. You will find a bad dinner, a good glass of wine, and a host thankful for your favour and desirous of encouraging repetitions of it, wathout number, form, or ceremony.”

It was a time when there was truly that ” hospitality sitting with gladness,” w-hich all the luxuries of the present day cannot supply.

More people at our table than usual

These days it is usually just Rosanne and me at the dining room table or occasionally 2 friends for dinner. Back in December, though, we hosted 6 members of our Sicilian family and the dining room was almost standing room only. 

This was their first day in town, so we greeted them with the quintessential LA meal of In-n-Out. 😀

Every other meal at home, though, looked more like our Italian meals when visiting them. They might have experienced the US and LA when we went out, but evenings cocooned them in a sense of normal home life.
