Another eBay acquisition…of course. The b-side is “I’m Gonna Bring My Girl A Watermelon Tonight” by Billy Murray!

Another eBay acquisition. I have a stack of recipes…perhaps I should post them all.

According to my dad:

“Helen Davis” was for awhile a fictitious staff home economist who made commercials, store appearances and wrote a newspaper column. She was our “Betty Crocker”. Her name meant nothing, other than it was wholesome sounding and began with an “H” and a “D.” The program was rather short=lived. I think we had two different “Helen’s”. Part of the problem was that the program lost some of its credibility when we had turnover in the character.
