The motel manager momentarily surveyed the young man up and down. "Passing through or here on business perhaps?"
The man remained motionless, but for his hand scribbling over the credit card slip.
Raising his head for an eye to eye, "I suppose you could say that. Spent some time looking at property for sale around Smithson County, I believe it's called? Sound right?"
"That's it," complied the manager, studying the credit receipt through the smoke screen made by the cigarette between his lips. "Mr. Woodson. You wouldn't be interested in becoming a motel owner?" He gave the young man a sly grin.
"No, no. Grew up in a place similar to the smaller towns around here. Just thought I'd check out the market. Know one thing, some pretty sassy babes selling Real Estate around here." He gave the manager a wink, turned and butting his suitcase against the screen edged outside.
Walking toward his car, he spoke to himself. "Sassy and sweet tasting too!" He laughed aloud. Inside the car he removed the business card from the visor. He pressed it on his nostrils inhaling deeply. Then licked it with his tongue.
"Marie, honey, there's nothing like the taste of perfume in the morning. 'Midnight Passion, ' I believe she called it."
French Household Cooking
From the INTRODUCTION.
"Animals feed, men eat, but only intelligent men know what to eat." - Brillat-Savarin.
THIS Cookery Book is not meant to take the place of the hundred and more thick volumes that have been compiled within the last fifty years. It neither pretends to explain the various terms in use among the chefs of the haute cuisine, nor to indicate the innumerable ways of preparing fish, flesh, or fowl that every professed cook knows as well or better than most writers on the subject It is intended to give a few suggestions to women of the world who appreciate the advantages of well-prepared food, and know the value that such food has in married life.
A series of well-chosen, well-cooked dinners, not necessarily large ones, will attract a man and keep him at home - interested and amiable - more than the ordinary woman supposes. In the interests of home life a well-cooked dinner is of more importance than a well-dressed wife. A man will admire a pretty dress, but in time he will get used to the unsatisfactory result of clothes; he never gets tired of good food, dressed with care and taste.
This book is therefore not intended as a complete Cours de Cuisine, but as an aid to women, and an indication of the simple methods employed in French homes, where the daily meals are always well prepared, at the humblest as at the most luxurious tables.
The elementary rules of good cooking are cleanliness, fresh ingredients, and good butter. The quality of the butter used in the preparing of eggs, vegetables, fish, meat, and sauces is of the greatest importance. In fact, in this matter alone is the secret of the different flavour of a plain dish cooked at the good restaurant from the same cooked at the "wine shop at the corner." A dish of French beans, small and tender, will be prepared in the same manner by the proprietor of the shop as by the chef at the restaurant; but one will use "kitchen" butter, the other will employ the finest to be procured. At one of the famous cuisines butter is purchased at the rate of 3s. 6d. the pound. This I mention to show the importance chefs attach to quality.
In French household cooking, good fresh butter is always used.
Another important factor is the utensil. Sauce-pans and frying-pans play a great part in the cooking of food. They must be scrupulously clean, and as the ordinary cook is more or less careless in this respect, the utensils should be either in common red earthenware or in china. In the majority of kitchens where hygiene is studied under the mistress's supervision, copper saucepans line the walls, but are rarely used. The daily food is prepared in china. With half-a-dozen china saucepans of all sizes, costing on the average tenpence apiece, a couple of frying-pans, an earthenware pot for soup, a smaller one for vegetables, a "cocotte" (a cast-iron stew-pan and cover), and a fish-kettle, the average household is ready for all emergencies. The outlay for china and earthenware is so small, that if a saucepan occasionally breaks, it can be replaced for a few pence.

A House Of Pomegranates
Oscar Wilde (16 October 1854 - 30 November 1900) was an extremely popular Irish writer and poet who wrote in different forms throughout his career and became one of London's most popular playwrights in the early 1890s. Today he is remembered for his epigrams, plays and the strange circumstances of his imprisonment, followed by his early death. At the turn of the 1890s, Wilde refined his ideas about the supremacy of art in a series of dialogues and essays, and incorporated themes of decadence, duplicity, and beauty into his only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890). The opportunity to construct aesthetic details precisely, and combine them with larger social themes, drew Wilde to write drama. He wrote Salome (1891) in French in Paris but it was refused a license. Unperturbed, Wilde produced four society comedies in the early 1890s, which made him one of the most successful playwrights of late Victorian London. Wilde reached the height of his fame and success with The Importance of Being Earnest (1895).
