Famous quotes with Stewed

  • I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child well nursed is at a year old a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled, and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
    Jonathan Swift

First thing you know, we'd all be eating stewed chickweed and acorns. There's always a lottery," he added petulantly.
