Elegant Walnut Salad

Walnut-Romaine_Elegant_Salad_Copyright_M-J_de_Mesterton

Simple and satisfying, a salad made with Romaine lettuce and crushed walnuts may be enhanced with Cheddar cheese to make a nutritious luncheon dish.  The best dressing for M-J’s Walnut-Romaine salad recipe is a honey-laced vinaigrette.  For an elegant salad-design, toss the lettuce in dressing before arranging the crushed walnuts around the edges of your bowl. ©M-J de MestertonRomaine__Elegant_Salad_Copyright_M-J_de_Mesterton

Home-Made Pizza

Pizza_Copper_Pan_Copyright_M-J_de_Mesterton_Elegant_Cook

I made my own pizza-dough as usual, and fitted it into a copper pan, decorated with sauce, cheese, parsley and pepperoni, then popped it into a 400-degree oven. This is the gorgeous pie that slipped right out of my pan onto a trivet.

The Gentleman’s Trifecta

The Elegant Man's Accessories

The Gentleman’s Trifecta is my husband’s term for the things represented in this photograph that we took in 2007.

I will explain a little more in the following editorial, which I wrote and published on Elegant Survival in 2010:

Burberry Suit from Sphere Magazine, Christmas Number, 1936

The Elegantly-Dressed Man

In this stylish drawing of a man, you don’t see a skinny jacket that is bursting open to expose sad trousers that hang at the hip, a bulging shirt and too-long tie. What we see here is a man who wears his trousers at the right length, ones that don’t pile-up like discarded potato sacks on top of his shoes, and which come up to the actual human waist, thereby visually lengthening his legs. And we see the gentleman’s traditional accessories: hat, gloves and walking-stick, each of which serves a purpose, such as protection from the elements, enthusiastic pigeons, dirt, germs, roving animals, and whoever may dare to attack him or anyone else in his immediate vicinity; the gentleman is always well-prepared for a stroll down today’s mean streets. Alas, this picture is clipped from an advert by Burberrys that appears in one of my 1930s Sphere magazines. Today’s men, in general, look like short, dumpy cads in clothes that are designed to distort human proportions. (Add the slovenly yet popular three-day growth beard to complete a tragic modern image.) Never in history has so much sartorial splendour been readily accessible, and yet men have seldom looked worse. It doesn’t cost any more to dress correctly than it does to do it badly, especially since some of the ghastliest clothes are going for the highest prices. There are few contemporary examples of elegant dressing in trendy venues and magazines. Help yourself by not following fashion, but instead by looking toward the best elements of the past for useful examples of tasteful masculine dress.

Inelegant, Heavy Earrings

Elegant is not the word for the earrings shown on OMG’s line-up of stars. Unless you’re wearing beer-goggles.
Refer to my essay at the bottom of the first page of Elegant Survival, “Elegant Woman or Christmas Tree.”
Ironically, Doctor Oz said just last week that earrings ought not be hanging more than an inch from one’s ears, and that they must weigh no more than a half-ounce. Pendulous earrings are going to age your earlobes terribly. These photos show some really cheap looking earrings that may have cost a fortune, but then having truly elegant taste doesn’t cost much.
Here is another weird interpretation of reality by OMG: what is essentially a girdle or corset masquerading as an evening gown would NOT be better without the diaphanous train:

Elegant, Easy Exercise

Bounce your way to better health with this ideal mini-trampoline. As long as your feet are in fair condition and you’re able to stand, this mini-trampoline is easy to use, and its cardio-vascular benefits are similar to those acquired by jumping rope. And “rebounding” on a trampoline is easier than jumping rope, because there is nothing on which to trip. It seems like all the rage right now, but those in the know were using mini-trampolines in the 1990s. The svelte and intelligent character Charlotte Cavendish in the series Lovejoy, for example, used to bounce fifty times on her mini-trampoline in the morning, and another fifty in the evening.
