Gail Patrick (June 20 1911 - July 6 1980) treats us to a delightful cold lunch today. It includes: Piquant Tongue Loaf, Cranberry Salad, Potato Chips, French Dressing, Chocolate Cream Chips, and Iced Tea.
Because of how picky an eater I am, I'm not sure I could eat Gail's lunch. Tongue Loaf just doesn't do it for me, Piquant or no. Understandably, this meal would not have been unusual for the time, so I understand it.
The Cranberry Salad sounds good, and it's fun to see a recipe for French dressing. Definitely would eat the Potato Chips (I'm a total salt addict), and Iced tea sounds refreshing. I thing the Chocolate Cream Chips sound good too, with obvious adjustment because the egg whites are not cooked.
Gail Patrick was in the Delta Zeta sorority, and donated $1 Million to them in her will. That's real sisterhood!
She designed Children's clothing for children of celebrities out of her home in the 1940's and 1950's
She was married to Robert Howard Cobb from 1936 to 1940, owner of the famous Brown Derby Restaurant and inventor of the Cobb Salad.
