    1 pound large frogs’ legs, cleaned and chilled
    1/4 pound Virginia ham
    1 or 2 egg whites
    2 or 3 tablespoons flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    Oil for deep frying

    Break and remove bone of each frog leg.
    Cut ham in very slender sticks and insert in each leg in the bone cavity.
    Beat egg whites slightly, mix with flour and seasonings.
    Dip frogs’ legs in this, then fry in deep hot oil till light golden and crusty.
    Serve hot with soya sauce or Plum Sauce (see recipe below).
    4 or more servings.


    1 cup plum jelly
    1/2 cup chutney (Major Grey type) chopped very fine
    1 tablespoon vinegar
    1 tablespoon sugar

    Beat all together smoothly.
    Serve with Egg Rolls, Fantail Shrimp, Lobster, Barbecued Spareribs, Chinese Roast Pork, or almost any dish. 4 servings.

    This sauce and Hot Mustard Sauce are usually served in two small dishes, with Egg Rolls and other favorites.

    I thought collecting frogs was a boy thing, but then again, my sister caught one as a kid.

    However, Nancy has been refreshed by Guy Gilchrist, and isn’t like some of the tired strips that have been clogging newspapers for decades.
    Peanuts comes to mind. It should have been buried with Sparky Schulz. We don’t have a new cartoonist drawing new Peanuts strips.
    Mary Worth, Rex Morgan, M.D., Apartment 3-G and “Prince Valium” (as he was spoofed in “Spaceballs”) all clog up newspapers that are too conservative to get rid of junk strips that should have been retired decades ago.
    Alley Oop isn’t near the caliber that it once was.

    While I understand your point, “Peanuts” is one of the few comics I know that is actually worth seeing again. Some of them bring me back to when I was a kid in school, and I remember where I was, and what I was doing.

    Well what did you expect Nancy to do with them, hang them up? Lucy & Shellby are a nice surprise, eh Fritzi?

    Prince Valiant has some of the best artwork I’ve ever seen in a comic strip! It’s like looking at a new painting every Sunday. And most newspapers today have printing presses that are able to reproduce the colors in register, with no blurring. How is that “clogging up” the paper? If you don’t care for it, just pass it by.

    @Ashburn stadium
    The comics are light hearted fun to read ,better than reading about all the violence that goes on around the world. if you don,t like them why do you read them.

    My local paper dropped many of the older strips long ago, but I’m glad I found them online because I like the ongoing story lines. I DO wish they’d move a little faster. Showing my age, they bring back memories of childhood. It’s harder to relate to some of the newer strips. To each their own.

    I have some of the same thoughts as ashburn but agree just not read them. I choose my comics here do not take a news paper and I do choose to have Peanuts on my daily list.
