24 March 1944 “Movie for a Sunday with Rita Hayworth & Gene Kelly and some Recipes”

covergirlritahayworth Today’s Movie for a Sunday comes from 1944 and stars Rita Hayworth and Gene Kelly. The Film Cover Girl tells the story of a chorus girl given a chance at stardom when she is offered an opportunity to be a highly-paid cover girl.The film won the 1944 Academy Award for best musical scoring.

Enjoy your Sunday Movie and a few recipes from the book Foods That will Win the War and How to Cook them. I included these few for fun and to try. The book can be found under the Library button at top and under the Cookbook section. I hope to continue to add to this database. You will also find today in the various boxes I update here on the site another free ebook called The Myrtle Reed Cookbook, it is free and well worth a look-see.

Have a lovely Sunday and Happy Homemaking.

  1. Well, it's not a wartime recipe, but I made Watergate Salad today. I've been craving it recently and I finally bought the ingredients to make it. I remember loving that salad when I was a child.
