Daily Diet Sheets

As I struggle to keep within my rations (the will is weak at the moment) and due to the wonderful encouragement I am receiving from people on a daily basis, I’d really like to share with you a daily record of EVERY morsel of food that passes these nostalgic lips from now until next Monday.

I’ll take a quick photo of my dinner plate each evening so you can see that it is not piled high with ‘Nachos and Cheese’ instead of 1940’s cuisine…. 🙂

Will post every evening. (starting Tuesday evening)

One day **MY KNICKERS** will be significantly smaller- I know it!

Salad Dressing for immediate use


So, so very hot yesterday- especially my house which seems to enjoy sitting at 85 F most of the day if the sun comes out (great in winter, lousy in summer)..

Looking through my 1940’s cook books I just couldn’t bring myself to slave in the kitchen over a cooked meal so a big plate of salad leaves, cucumber and tomato was called for. But what to drizzle over it? In one of my books there was a recipe for a quick salad dressing and luckily I had all the ingredients to hand. Well the taste was interesting…wasn’t exactly horrible but wasn’t exactly nice either. However, it did the trick..

wasn’t exactly horrible but wasn’t exactly nice either..

Salad Dressing for immediate use

  • Blend 1 level tablespoon of household milk powder with 1 level tablespoon of dried egg powder (just don’t sniff the dried egg or you’ll never use it again..), 1/2 teaspoon salt, a little pepper and dried mustard powder
  • Add 1 tablespoon of water and 2 tablespoons of vinegar and mix until smooth and beat well until thickens a little
  • Place in fridge until chilled and then use
