Ike loved to cook. Beef soup was one of his specialties. Some of his favorite foods were soups - oxtail and cream of artichoke, in particular. Other favorite foods included pie, rice pudding, and succotash.Hmmmm didn't Ike like BBQ?
Genuine 50s food. I remember it all well. Loved succotash, haven't had it in years.Ike loved to cook. Beef soup was one of his specialties. Some of his favorite foods were soups - oxtail and cream of artichoke, in particular. Other favorite foods included pie, rice pudding, and succotash.
Yeah, I can identify with that myself. When I first joined this board in '05 under a different username I thought I was fairly well informed on the war. After all, I had read both of Catton's trilogies, Foote's trilogy, McPherson's Pulitzer prize winning "Battle Cry of Freedom", plus numerous other books on different battles like Shiloh, The Wilderness, Gettysburg, Antietam Creek, Perryville etc., and several regimental histories, plus some soldier's diaries. Soon after joining, and I believe I've mentioned this before not too long ago, I discovered quite quickly that I was a "lightweight", as far as knowledge of the war, and I still consider myself to be such, even after all this time. This board is a never-ending fount of information, and I don't see it running dry anytime soon.I personally have learned more about Civil War events just browsing through these threads than all the books I've read.
