Do you remember the song which was used as an educational tool for teaching children the days of the week? The nursery rhyme originated in the late 19th century; but, the lyrics were published in 1842. The name of the nursery rhyme comes from a food dish called Salmagundi. They are colorful platters of food. Some are meats, others seafood, and they all have vegetables and fruits on the platters. Some of the platters are mixtures of different items, but each is very colorful, with a variety of offerings. The idea was originated in the 17-century in England. There are no recipes; instead, it is a presentation of a very large plate of your own choosing. The dish’s goal is to produce a wide range of flavors, colors, and textures on one plate. The rhyme words are:
Solomon Grundy, born on a Monday, christened on Tuesday, married on Wednesday, took ill on Thursday, grew worse on Friday, died on Saturday, buried on Sunday. That was the end of Solomon Grundy.
