Have you ever seen that old vintage trivet made of cast iron a lot of people hang in their kitchen? It has a picture of a couple kissing by a picket fence. The tagline reads—“Kissin’ don’t last, good cookin’ do.” I think it’s hilarious...
I love seeing old things like that which remind me of home and simpler times. It got me thinking of other old sayings I’ve seen that make the kitchen warm and friendly. Some are real side-splitters.
Here are a few I found (Let me know what you think):
“Eat, drink, and be merry...for tomorrow ye diet.”
“Never trust a skinny chef.”
“My mother’s menu consisted of two things: take it or leave it”
“Avoid fruits and nuts. You are what you eat.”
“I come from a family where gravy is considered a beverage.”
“It’s after you lost your teeth that you can afford to buy steaks.”
“Worries go down better with soup.”
And my personal favorite, “I’m not saying my wife’s a bad cook, but she uses a smoke alarm as a timer.”
Aren’t those great? I think they would be terrific written on plates or stenciled on the wall. What do you think?
Let me know if you all know of any more and I’ll post them on this blog.
PS Oh, and by the way, we’re doing some big cookin’ for lunch and dinner at the Pink House this month. Check out our Facebook page for items we’re serving. We’ll just leave all the kissin’ to you. Ha, ha.
