Dishes For The Sick And Convalescent



My friend Kjirsten is sick~while we are broiling in the sun right now she is in the middle of winter and feeling pretty low. I was flipping through the old cookbooks and found a section for sick people in the 1928 edition of a Sunkist sponsered book. It starts off by giving you an education on the health properties of citrus fruit. I'll spare you of that. Here are the recipes:

Lemon Whey

1 cup milk
1 Tbsp "Sunkist" lemon juice

Heat milk in a double boiler and add lemon juice. Cook without stirring until the whey separates. Strain through a double thickness of cheese cloth. Add sugar to taste and serve at once or chill and serve. DISGUSTING! Ewww




ORANGE OMELET

1 egg
grated orange rind
1 Tbsp orange juice
salt
1 orange
2 tsp butter
2 tsp powdered sugar


Beat egg, orange rind, juice, and salt. Peel orange and slice thinly. Sprinkle with 1 tsp of sugar. Melt butter in a frying pan, pour in egg slowly. Cook over low heat until all mixture is cooked and flip onto plate. Sprinkle with remaining sugar and surround with orange slices. MUCH BETTER.



HOT LEMONADE

3 Tbsp "Sunkist" Lemon juice
3/4 cup boiling water
1 Tbsp sugar

Add sugar to boiling water and stir until dissolved. Add lemon juice and serve.


REALLY. That's it? Kjirsten, add some vodka or whisky and I gaurantee this recipe will make you feel better. Get Well soon!!!
