I've just returned from Pennsylvania, yes, sadly I had to leave the Doves & the Robin I posted about yesterday:( I'm very tired and have a pretty full day tomorrow. As much as I would LOVE to celebrate May Day with you, I'm afraid it will have to wait until next year.
The orchards are in bloom,
The bees alight on blossoms bright
Are burdened with perfume,
Bright golden sunbeams kiss the sands
By azure lake and sea,
And where the rock-ribbed mountain stands
May wakes her melody.
Oh fragrant May, oh flowery May,
Bright queen of all the year,
To you I bring my offering,
To me you are most dear.

American Cookery May 1920
Some of my regular visitors will remember me mentioning my AOL website I had way back in 1999. I was delighted to find a recipe I posted back then for May Day from American Cookery Magazine; May 1920. I had the recipe on this computer and thought I would include it for today.
Thankfully, I posted the May Food Celebrations last year @ my other blog where you will also find a dishful of surprises including a recipe for Brioche of Strawberry a la Hedgehog. If you scroll down to the post below where I have the May Food Celebrations second page, it's all about salads and dressings. There's also a salad recipe poem from 1867! Oh, you did you know, May is National Salad Month!!!
May was a busy month for me last year. At Tasteful Inventions (my other, other blog:) I celebrated the "birth" of CheeriOats. (Cheerios)
I'm hoping to be back to regular posting on Saturday which happens to be Dandelion Day and Comic Book Day. Oh, I may as well mention the Comic Book Day Recipes I also posted last year. Don't forget to drop by May 4th for the FREE cookbook give-away details!
