Thank you for your support, Lee. Alley, I will grant you that many ingredients, particularly, ethnic ones, were difficult to obtain, especially out of season or away from areas with high immigration populations, up to very recent times. However, every period of history has had both good and awful food. Delicious food can be made with simple ingredients and exotic dishes can be dreadful. No point in arguing about how good the spaghetti really was. That was long ago and my aunt is deceased. What does interest me is whether it was unusual for people in my grandfather’s household, Scotch Irish and German, to bring home Italian takeout, as it were, or if lots of people did that.
