THANKSGIVING MARILYN MONROE GEM

 
You guys crack me up! Lately in the comments and a few emails, I have had a response to my new Thanksgiving header, so I though I'd share a few more of Marilyn.....


And then on the inter webs, I came across this gem from Marilyn's recipes....Jotted on a letterhead from an insurance company, the late screen siren explains how she prepares a turkey dinner, with all of the trimmings.
 
 
The notes, are evidence yet that she had a passion for cooking.
Fussing over details, Monroe writes that giblets must be ‘liver-heart’ and stipulates that the beef must be ‘browned (no oil)'. She even takes care to specify the quantity of the produce needed.
The most important instruction of all is right at the very top, where she states that ‘no garlic’ should be added to the stuffing.
Monroe’s flair for cooking was evident at an auction of her personal effects in 1999 when two well-worn cookbooks of hers from the 1950s were sold off for well above the reserve. The recipe is dated around 1955 or 1956 when she was living in New York with her husband, the playwright Arthur Miller.

Looks like we both liked rubbing bird.

    1. The Mistress could never wear the pilgrim outfit, his junk would hang out the shorts.

  11. That's a scary recipe. I sure hope that Arthur loved her for more than her cooking and recipe dictation.
