I have this old 1963 cookbook published by Better Homes and Gardens.* It has a section in the front called, "Meals Men Like." The introduction says:
"Fix any of these delicious meals for your man and you'll be the 'Best Cook' he knows."
A sample menu:
"Stew Supper Supreme"
Old-time Beef Stew
Crisp Cabbage Slaw
Apple Betty Pie
Coffee Cream and Sugar
The directions suggest serving the pie with vanilla ice cream! The description for the stew says it will serve "6 to 8 hungry folks" and a "go-with" would include "thick slices of bread."
It sounds like a delicious meal! Sometimes, when we create a little menu, it makes the experience extra special.
How many housewives today are making a real old fashioned supper for their husbands? How many of us dress up nicely for when he comes home from work, and make his environment peaceful? Certainly it is difficult when we have small children, but even if we did some of our cooking early in the day we could heat it up in the evening.
Cooking for Mister. . . When a wife makes pleasant, home cooked meals and serves them cheerfully, that man will be eager to leave work and head back to his family. It's like he has his own little restaurant, at the greatest place on earth - HOME!
