This is it, take a close look. Could you resist this book? It's not the book jacket, though it has its mighty charms. Part of my delight with this book is the table settings. I can remember reading that the plastic table covering is one option, but for certain foods, layered newspaper is preferable. That would be for fancy parties of crawfish or shrimp eating--truly messy food to eat. And when the meal is finished, you haul the newspaper and all it's messy shells to the trash. We white trash folks can be so very practical without ever losing our charm. I am pleased to know how many of us are or were owners of this gem. Makes a lovely Xmas gift. And there are little stories about how a particular recipe was invented. Like the Grand Canyon Cake, Nan told us about from her copy. All it takes is white cake mix, round cake pans, aplenty, food coloring, and whiskey of some sort. I'm thinking moonshine, but that just the romantic in me.
