SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY
from Bull Cook and Authentic Historical Recipes and Practices, c. George Leonard Herter, 1969
best cookbook ever. there’s a baller recipe for Baba au Rhum, instructions for how to skin bullheads and catfish, recipes for muskrat legs, tips on baking potatoes using nails, formulas for making wine out of any kind of flower, and a final section with the heading “In Case of a Hydrogen Bomb Attack You Must Know the Ways of the Wilderness to Survive.”
it’s like The Joy of Cooking’s crazy shut-in uncle.

"here is a directory of all the businesses in town, printed in very tiny font in a book of lists. it is 10 pages long. photocopy each of these pages, then scan them to file and save as pdf. then, convert them to either word or excel, then discard all columns except for name and address and create a database of these so we can do a mail merge."
or, i could type them.
"hopefully it’ll work this way, instead."
