The Second Email We Sent Today, March 26, 2019
Good morning! The first email we sent out today was the HMM WEEKLY PREMIUM NEWSLETTER, featuring content available only to the members, supporters, and patrons of Hmm Daily. If you're getting this, and if we configured our email account settings right, you are on the Hmm Daily mailing list but not among our members, supporters, or patrons. We're glad to correspond with you regardless, but if you'd like to read the full HMM WEEKLY PREMIUM NEWSLETTER, please join our paying community. Thank you for your interest!
Hmm Weekly readers are now up to No. 11 in our series of 19 Folktales, "The Great Turnip."
LAST WEEK ON HMM DAILY
Although we provide newly written newsletter content for HMM WEEKLY, we present here for your continued delectation several more recipes for sandwiches selected from The Up-To-Date Sandwich Book: 400 Ways to Make a Sandwich, published in 1909 and now in the public domain:
Two cups of finely minced cold cooked chicken, a heaping tablespoonful of Parmesan cheese, a tablespoonful of tomato catsup, a dash of French mustard, salt and pepper, add a little thick cream, work all to a smooth paste. Place between thin slices of buttered white bread. Garnish with a stick of celery.
Pass two cupfuls of freshly popped corn through the meat chopper, place this in the chopping bowl, add a dash of salt and cayenne pepper, five boned sardines, a dash of Worcestershire, and enough tomato catsup to form a paste, Spread this on circles of hot buttered toast. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and crisp in a hot oven. Serve as soon as made
BUMMERS CUSTARD SANDWICH
Take a cake of Roquefort cheese and divide in thirds; moisten one third with brandy, another third with olive oil, and the other third with Worcestershire sauce. Mix all together and place between split water biscuits toasted. Good for a stag lunch.
