Here is one of Joan’s favorite recipes, originally published in a 1928 article titled “Soup, Salad and Dessert: They Make or Mar the Meal” from an issue of Photoplay Magazine.
…once in a while, being only human, Joan forgets all about her careful diet, as witness her recipe for French Banana Salad…
I don’t know how bananas, peanuts, mayo and lettuce read as FRENCH, but as I established with her Danti-Chips, I’m not gonna question Ms. Crawford.
Because she will cut a bitch.
So here it is–if you dare–Joan’s French Banana Salad…
Honestly, I don’t know what the fuck this is.
I mean, it’s banana and mayo and peanuts and lettuce, but REAL TALK! You’re gonna tell me that THIS is what Joan Crawford ate when she went against her careful diet? A banana with mayo and peanuts? Not ice cream? Cake? Pie?
Yeah, this is how I felt about this shit:
It was wrong. All kinds of wrong.
The succession of flavor was as such:
- & peanut again
That ain’t good. I am completely befuddled.
Even though this was–like I said, I don’t know what the fuck this is–my goal is to make a Bette/Joan-related dish for every episode of this series. So keep your Sundays open. But! There are some big changes coming up at DiS HQ–which I will tell you all about very soon! So if I fail, don’t hate me.
OK, kittens–are ready for episode two?
Here’s the trailer!
Enjoy tonight’s show! Tomorrow let’s have a chat over on the Facebook Page!
