31284 - "Coffee, News, and a Loyal Friend" Civilian Man at Breakfast with Dog

W. Britains

This pup waits patiently for his master to finish his morning meal before he can enjoy some tasty scraps. On the menu is crusty bread, bacon, and sofkee. As today, there were many different types of bread; some with cornmeal, rye, or buckwheat among the ingredients. Bread was thought to be unhealthy when warm so many waited until the next day before eating. The word bacon derives from various dialects, including the Old French bacun, and Old Teutonic backe, which refers to the back. As late as the 16th century, bacon simply meant pork, and in antebellum America the term was used for any dry-cured meat. Lastly the Sofkee, a Native American sour corn mixture and forerunner modern grits. Many recipes called for a combination of beans, black-eyes peas, wild onion, and/or rice to make a hearty dish.
