Show me a recipe with a bit of small town snark buried inside of it from an 1894 church cookbook. Delightful.
AMBROSIA FOR ONE
Fill a saucer with fresh peaches, finely sliced, or strawberries, carefully picked and selected; over this, place a measure of ice-cream, vanilla flavor. Cover all with powdered sugar to the depth of one-fourth inch. Eat with spoon (if your income is over twenty thousand dollars, you can use a strawberry fork). [emphasis added] Serve with angels food, or almond macaroons.
