There was a period in time when I would spend one day in the kitchen in prep for a months worth of meals. Today, I simply wing it from what's on sale, etc. Of course, today it's just the two of us and not a group of hungry growing children.
Below are the recommend menus for the month of October from Table Talk ©1891. I find these interesting to see what kind of food was planned and available during that month. Enjoy!
