The Star car. Was this a brand? Just a dealership? Star Cars Moye-Davis Motor Co. Searcy AR

This full page ad came from an old cook book that is so worn I can find no date.

Women's Missionary Society Cook Book is at the tops of pages.

Moye-Davis Motor Company was at Searcy AR with Phone 296.

I love the way the description reads,  "ability to climb hills in high gear that most cars crawl up in second......enables it to pull through mud and sand that stall most cars."

But to tell the truth, I've never heard of a Star Car.

This book may even predate some of the Sleuths!

Here is a fritter batter recipe...I have been told that this is a french recipe...but some areas around here had a strong french influence...this batter is GREAT to dip shrimp, beef, chicken or pork in and then deep fry...but you must cut them up into small bite size pieces...well, except for the shrimp which to my guys is already bite size...haha...

6 TBspons of water, 1 TBspoon of butter, 6 TBspons of all purpose flour, 4 eggs, 1 tspoon of vanilla and confectioners' sugar...Heat deep fat to 375 degrees.  Combine water, butter and flour in saucepan.  Boil over low heat for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.  Remove pan from heat.  Beat in eggs, one at a time.  Beat batter for 3 minutes.  Add vanilla.  Drop batter from teaspoon into hot fat.  Cook until golden brown.  Drain.  Dust with confectioners' sugar.  Serve at once.  Yield:  4-6 servings....

Fritters are great just as they are...but we enjoy using this batter on meats and dip in a sweet / sour sauce and serve with rice...It is a great way to use left overs...just cut up the left over meat into bite size pieces...not too small...dip in batter and then fry...let me know if you try it...

Next time we make butter...I set aside some for you too...There is nothing like homemade bread and fresh sweet REAL butter...now, I'm hungry...

The other night I made something I make about 2-3 times a year:  tempura.  all sorts of vegs. cut up into bite sized pieces:  green beans, sweet potatoes, onions, green pepper, mushrooms, then meats:  shrimp, chicken and pork.  It's a Japanese batter thing.  DELICIOUS... that batter is just cold water, flour and egg yolks.

 

Debbie:  as Don and I are the bread makers on this blog, we'll bring the homemade bread if you'll bring the homemade butter.   I think I remember when my son was in the Cub Scouts, "we" (he) made butter just from churing the heck out of whipping cream. 

And smart alec, Don:  Of course my Google finger isn't broken, but I figured you'd come thru and I'd save my finger for bigger and better things.

Debbie, that recipe sounds like one I shoud try.  But that is a lot of eggs!  How much batter does it make?  Are they almost just fried eggs?

Anita, your recipe sounds easier and I like tempura.  How much of the ingredients do you use. I have some small shrimp that I need to do somethng with and that may be an idea.  AND....don't get in front of me to get Debbie's homemade butter!!!!

Give me a day or so notice and we will have to get our bread and butter together...No worries, Ms. B, the boys have already been notified that next time we make homemade butter you get some of it...

Ms. Anita your recipe does sound easy...that recipe I posted makes quite abit of batter but it puffs up...oh, it's just good...we haven't made it in a long time...when we do we make a bunch...fried foods aren't supposed to be so good for you these days...haha...

Debbie, fried foods are NOT good for you!  And the clean-up for the cook is not so good either. I really hate having to clean off the stove afterwards.
