I am not normally a jealous person but when a new test cook in the USA sent me a photo of the stove on which she cooks I went BRIGHT GREEN with envy. A 1936 “Magic Chef” cooker that is a joy to behold. Check out the picture on the Flickr page – Magic Chef.
Rebecca aka Alice emailed me out of the blue from Snowy Wisconsin when she stumbled on the blog and was very excited about the prospect of test cooking for us. She tried August’s Recipe of the Month and declared the ribs to be YUMMY. “The family ate every last bite” she said. There is a pic of Alice’s ribs (if you know what I mean) on the Flickr page alongside that gorgeous cooker (bought for $100 I am told – CURSES!).
I just LOVE getting emails from people all over the world who are interested in the Silver Screen Suppers project so don’t hesitate to drop me a line. I am such a nosey parker that I adore seeing pictures of people’s kitchens and finding out little bits of information about them. I know that Alice doesn’t like peaches for example and my powers of Sherlock Holmes deduction tell me that she may have an Airedale Terrier.
It’s like when I was a child and I had penpals. I belonged to some kind of international penpal organisation – can’t remember what it was called. Whenever I read letters from other children in different countries I would imagine them living their lives and daydream about what my life would be like if I lived where they did. One of them send me a pendant their dad made from a piece of reindeer horn. Wonderful.
So these reports from test cooks make me EXCEEDINGLY happy. Keep them coming new and lovely Silver Screen Supperers!
Thanks for the nice comments. Just a little correction — my Magic Chef is from 1936 not 1926 — I probably typed it incorrectly as my fingers were still a little sticky from the ribs!
And yes, I DO have an Airedale Terrier, his name is Chuckles! He gave a big “paws up” for the ribs. He was allowed to lick the plate.
Aw, thanks Rebecca! Tee hee – lucky old Chuckles getting to lick the plate. I’m just preparing the September recipe of the month so I wonder if that one will get “paws up” too?!
