That's "Mumu" not "Moo-Moo"
Growing up, I really thought it was, "moo-moo" like the noise a cow makes, and being a shapeless sort of dress I just naively assumed that was what it was all about. My mother wore them at home, and as she was incessantly complaining about her figure ("I'm off to see Omar the tentmaker for a new frock") I never questioned it. Poor woman, she had such a short life, and she spent practically all of it measuring the caloric value of everything she ate, and weighing herself. I doubt she ever enjoyed a meal without obsessing over it.
(well, that was a bit off topic, wasn't it? )
Vintage Hawaii-made Mumu-Thrift World, .98 cents
Belt-80's, had it forever
Bangles-here and there
70's metal earrings-Hand-Me-Ups
Painted ring (I think it is bone, possibly ceramic) Hand-Me-Ups
70's brown beads-Hand-Me-Ups (plastic, but REALLY heavy)
Are you going to keep making that sad face at me? *sigh*. Fine, go get a spoon...but stay on your side of the container, we've been sick enough around here and I don't need your germs in my sherbet.
Want the recipe?
2 lbs. frozen raspberries heated and sieved through fine mesh to remove seeds
1/2 cup (or more to taste) granulated sugar
3 cups buttermilk
Heat the raspberry puree and sugar whisking just until sugar is dissolved. Whisk in buttermilk. Chill well, then prepare either in a machine, or using metal trays in the freezer (that's how I do it).
Yes, it makes a lot, but you still won't want to share.
