If I tried to do that to an elk steak my husband would frown royally!  I love bananas, but not on steak let alone sugar on steak.  I do use a sprinkle of nutmeg however along with salt, pepper, garlic and onion when I'm making 'Swiss Steak'.  And I'm very fond of bananas with peanutbutter.  Not on steak, however.  Interesting and fun post, by the way!  
This week's Sepia Saturday prompt gives us plenty of room to manoeuvre but I'll just stick with the temperature theme, given my current condition. Young ladies checking the oven of the combustion stove to see if their cak...

What a marvelous photograph.  But I have to wonder - by the children's wide-eyed expressions - what the photographer was doing to urge the children to look at the camera?

I know zilch about shucking clams - I don't see them till they come out of a can all neatly chopped up for clam chowder.  But the picture is neat.  Looks like diligent work, but at least they get to sit down whilst they do it. :)

Those cakes look so yummy in that window - especially the crème-filled ones.  And the curved glass certainly does gives the place a special look.  The Black Bun is interesting.  I couldn't really tell from the pictures what it's made of.  Looks like sliced almonds, raisins, and a LOT of sugar?  At first I thought your Scottish friend was going to say the New Year's tradition was haggis.  Non-Scots flinch when haggis is mentioned, but  - done right - it can actually be almost tasty. :)   As to baking for the holidays - I used to make my Grandmother's molded persimmon pudding with lemon sauce, but haven't done so in several years.  I should make it again.  It really is wonderful stuff.    
Oh my goodness! 2016! Can you believe it? I am delighted with Alan's choice of prompt photo on Sepia Saturday this week. I have been wanting to post some photos of the Wingfield's Bakery for some time, thanks to the hard w...

Oh I have never heard of Persimmon pudding with lemon sauce.  It sounds magnificent.  I'm off to find a recipe now.

A jolly good picture!  I took pictures of my kiddos, when they were young, in front of the tree too.  "Tradition!"

What a lovely collection of photos.  You're very lucky to have them & thanks for sharing.  Love all those smiles!
My maternal grandparents, Hans Boltz (1910-1992) and Charlotte Manock (1912-1988), were members of the Kanu-Club Wannsee in Berlin before they were married. The following pictures are photos from their photo album. Wannsee i...

The first postcard scene has so much more charm!  I wouldn't mind the smell of hot dogs & maybe not cotton candy, but for some reason I do not do well with the smell of popcorn - especially caramel popcorn.  Oh well.

Except for the fiery heat, I imagine a flow of molasses like that might resemble a flow of lava.  How scary it must have been for the people in its path!

These are pictures of rugby teams - you can tell by the shape of the ball.  It looks similar to an American football, football, but is slightly bigger/plumper.  And have you ever noticed the way men & boys, when posing for a team picture, are apparently told to cross their arms?  I suppose it's meant to make them look more manly.  In the same way, women & girls are oft told to fold their hands in their laps - to look more feminine I guess.  Funny.
Alan Burnett provides us with this blogging meme from Sepia Saturday today. He says: Now, what on earth is going on here? What we do know is that the photograph - which is our Sepia Saturday theme image this week - comes...

You are quite correct.  I tend to call all football ...well...football...but yes, the initials stand for the Rugby League Football Club...as opposed to Rugby Union which is a very different code of football altogether.

My youngest grandson was born on January 2nd - 12 years ago!  I see he is in good company!  My Mom's birthday - May 11th - always falls right around Mother's Day and she, like your grandmother, didn't like being the center of attention so kept trying to encourage us not to celebrate her birthday on Mother's Day.  Of course we didn't listen to her and she was 'forced' to open and read her birthday cards as well as her Mother's Day cards along with all the other mothers.  And we're looking forward to her having to do it again on her 98th birthday and Mother's Day in 2016 - her actual birthdate following Mother's Day by 3 days in the new year.  :)

That's quite a version of Uncle Sam!  Too bad the photo isn't in color.  I imagine it would be rather colorful.  I remember having a 'thermometer' to show donations coming in for a new community hall piano one time.  Donations were coming in so fast we could barely keep up with the red line rising!  And that's good, of course. :)

They seemed to have had their own idea of style as their outfits appear to be much brighter than the norm - especially for a formal portrait.  Good for them!  And yes, the poem is indeed quite a lovely remembrance.
