ELV’s Thought(s) for the Day


My dinners have never interfered with my business. They have been my recreation…A public banquet (dinner), if eaten with thought and care, is no more of a strain than a dinner at home. – Chauncey DePew (1834-1928)

Dining out is a vice. A dissipation of spirit punished by remorse. – Cyril Connolly, The Unquiet Grave (1944)

Why should so vast a national expenditure be left entirely to chance?Duncan Hines, Adventures in Good Eating (1936)
