Tell me it aint so, Ladybird!!! Tue, 06/21/05 2:52 PM (permalink)
As an avid cookbook reader, i came accross one at the library Called--"The First Ladies Cookbook---Favorite recipes of all the Presidents of the United States"---it says it is 'compiled and edited by outstanding culinary and historical authorities"from GMG publishing. Well---imagine my surprise with this recipe from the Johnson administration------ Pedernales River Chili
4 lbs chili meat
8 T bacon drippings
1 large onion,chopped
1 t oregano
1 t comino seed
i string dried mushrooms 6 t chili powder 1 1/2 cups canned whole tomatoes 2-6 dashes liguid hot pepper sauce
salt to taste 2 cups water
AND---------2 no 2 cans of KIDNEY BEANS!!!!!!!!

Now i know that we may not all have shared the man's political beliefs---but---come on folks--a TEXAN's favorite recipe for chili with BEANS!!!! Can this be so!

This has GOT to have been editied by someone from NEW YORK CITY!---i just have a hard time picturing Ladybird stirring in canned beans to her pot of Texas Red!!!

BTW--according to this--Harry Truman could well have been a true roadfooder---favorite meal--Meatloaf,with tuna noodle casserole made with a white sauce and Ozark Pudding for dessert!---and George Washington was a big fan of chess pie!
