Weekend Menu Suggestion?

1 04 2011

Prudence Penny department staff member shopping at Pike Place Market, Seattle, 1939

Fresh vegetables just waiting to be popped into a lovely crisp salad, inspired Prudence Penny to plan a Spring Salad Show for tomorrow’s Bon Marché matinee at 2 o’clock.

Prudence Penny’s telephones are open from 8:30 until 5 with a staff of experts to help with any household questions.  Just telephone Main 2000, the Prudence Penny department will be glad to assist.  Read the daily feature and the Wednesday food pages for up-to-the-minute ideas and listen to the following menus discussed over KOMO daily at 12 o’clock:

SUNDAY: Banana, grapefruit and nut salad with cheese dressing is followed by pig knuckles and pineapple with rice and bean sprouts.  Butterscotch meringue pie is the dessert.

Not an April Fool’s Day hoax, but an actual menu excerpted from one of the Prudence Penny clippings (minus date) found in a John Redington scrapbook.  April 1st coincidentally was the date that Bernice Redington claimed to have begun working at the P-I and also is the anniversary of this blog’s first public post, so I felt doubly compelled to follow up on yesterday’s entry!

And in the don’t-try-this-at-home department, I must confess that in the course of compiling information on Bernice Redington I gave into the temptation of dialing the Prudence Penny telephone number.  No one answered.

Sounds like a great Easter Brunch idea to me; I can’t get enough pig knuckles in my diet. Maybe you could bring this to the next SC potluck?
