    Clumsy is unlikely to have these ingredients with him, but this sounds tasty to me.

    From: “Woman’s Day Collector’s Cook Book (revised and enlarged)
    Published by: Simon and Schuster, New York
    SBN: 671-21986-3


    2 packages white-sauce mix
    Milk (whole)
    1/4 teaspoon marjoram
    2 cans (1 pound each) white onions, drained
    1 pound frankfurters, sliced
    2 tablespoons sherry (optional)

    Prepare white-sauce mix with milk as directed on package.
    Add next 3 ingredients.
    Simmer, covered, about 10 minutes.
    Add sherry, if desired.
    Makes 4 to 6 servings.

    Notes from me.

    Making white-sauce at home is even simpler than buying it.

    White Sauce (For the recipe above, double this. One pound of frankfurters is a lot of meat.)

    1 cup whole milk
    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    2 tablespoons butter
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper (At the most. I usually use just a 1/4 teaspoon.)

    Melt the butter over low heat (less than 1/3 of the dial).
    When the butter is melted, add the flour and stir until smooth.
    Raise the heat to about 1/2 the dial and cook the flour for about a minute. This gets rid of the “flour” taste. Add the milk, and whatever it is that you’re creaming, and heat, stirring constantly, until it begins to bubble and the sauce thickens.

    Anything creamed is best when served over hot buttered toast.

    Thank you for the reference. I should have known they would have one, but was unaware of the book’s existence. I just recently had my Dad pass on to me all my Mother’s old Women’s Day issues rather than letting them be tossed. I wanted the chance to look through them and clip the recipes. At least I know that if I miss any there is a chance that they might be in book form.

    Thanks again for the post.

    These comments are beginning to be “the recipe of the day.” Arlo and Janis has got somebody’s full page diatribe on making s’mores, for crying out loud. Now we have a similar tome on how to cook hot dogs. I wish the authors of these gems would just get together and assemble their cookbooks and leave the rest of us to enjoy the comics and their comments in peace.

    Yeah. It sure is dark. That’s what I always think when the sky is pure white.

    Are you serious?

    Somehow, I have trouble believing that Clumsy Carp could have successfully pulled all these things together like that. The knowledge to do it is one thing; the coordination—well, you judge!
