"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Alice Chalcraft gave me this recipe. She was our babysitter and the kids loved her to come play with them. She would get down in the floor if they promised to help her up. She said Keith would put his arms under hers and try to lift her up. (She was getting up there in years and said when we were done with her, she would retire from baby sitting). She also sat for Russell and his siblings. She stuck her teeth out at our kids. They loved Alice!
