A recipes from “Stora boken om Smörgåsar och Smörgåstårtor” (The Big Book on Sandwiches and Sandwich Cakes) published by ICA Bokförlag in 1985
Dagwood Bumstead is a main character in cartoonist Chic Young’s long-running comic strip Blondie. He first appeared sometime prior to 17 February 1933.
Dagwood was originally heir to the Bumstead Locomotive fortune but was disowned when he married a flapper (originally known as Blondie Boopadoop) whom his family saw as below his class. He has since worked hard at J. C. Dithers & Company (currently as the construction company’s office manager) to support his family. The Bumsteads’ first baby, Alexander, was originally named Baby Dumpling. The name of his younger sister, Cookie, was chosen by readers in a national contest. The family circle is rounded out by Daisy the dog. The origin of both Dagwood’s last name and Daisy’s name came from Chic Young’s long-time friend Arthur Bumstead and his dog, Daisy.
A sandwich recipe from “Are You Hungry Tonight?” published in 1992
Elvis loved a good BLT, probably because two of the ingredients were at the top of his roster of favorites: bacon and big old juicy beefsteak tomatoes. He loved tomatoes. While you’re assembling this sandwich, you may want to put “Just For You” on the record player. And remember: Elvis preferred well-done bacon, not actually burned to charcoal, but cooked very crispy.
A breakfast recipe from “The Love Of Cooking” (Kjærligheten Til Matlaging) published published by Ebury Press in 1972
The Danes take breakfast seriously (as they do all other meals) so a dry slice of bread with a quickly added spread will hardly do after the morning shower in that neck of the woods. This delicious skillet dish should prove my point – Ted
These delicious snacks can be made ready at home before you head for the hike and grilled on a campfire grill grid when you have set up camp, dinner is over and the tea water is boiling. If you don’t bother to bring a grid a few stick will work just as well.
You could make these snacks at home too of course, but we all know they will taste much, much better by the campfire – Ted 😉
A classic Norwegian dinner recipe found in “Gode Gamle Oppskrifter” (Good Old Recipes) published by Gyldendal in 1991
The childhood dream in the old days for many Norwegian children was to eat bacon pancakes as often as they wanted, and as many as possible. But pancakes takes time to cook, and there were usually several people round the table, so the cakes had often dispensed equally between the them.
One hardly ever hear of people eating bacon pancakes any more. That’s a pity really, because it is a delicious dish, particularly served with lingonberry jam as suggested in the recipe – Ted
A real classic British breakfast recipe found in a booklet published by gilde.no
It was somewhat strange to find such an utter British dish in a booklet from a Norwegian meat supplier, but so what. I’m a real sucker for a solid breakfast and always go for the full english when in Britiain. Continental is for sissies – Ted 😉
