November 2nd Celebrated (And Not So Celebrated) History

1920

For several reasons, the 1920 election is notable. Thanks to the passing of the 19th amendment, women voted in a presidential election for the first time. Of the 100 signers of the Declaration of Sentiments at the 1848 Women’s Rights Convention, only one lived to see the day – Charlotte Woodward Pierce.

The voters elected Warren G. Harding as president.

The KDKA radio station in Pittsburgh becomes one of the first to broadcast voting returns.

1931 

At a meeting of the American Chemical Society in Akron, OH, Dupont announced the development of synthetic rubber. Notre Dame priest, Rev Julius Arthur Nieuwland, is credited with the discovery of the process. Synthetic rubber is more elastic, flexible, and heat and cold tolerant than natural rubber. The discovery improved options for many products throughout industry.

1947 

For the first and only time, Howard Hughes pilots the Spruce Goose on its only flight. Designated the H-4, the entirely wooden plane was larger than any other aircraft at the time. Hughes piloted the plane for one minute. He reached an altitude of 70 feet and flew for just over one mile.

1948 

Harry S. Truman wins re-election in an upset against Thomas E. Dewey. Pollsters were so certain of Dewey’s win that the Chicago Daily Tribune published its paper with the headline “Dewey Defeats Truman!”

2000

American William Shepherd and Russians Sergei Krikalev and Yuri Gidzenko become the first International Space Station residents when their Soyuz spacecraft links up.

Recipe of the Day

Jalapeno, Bacon & Pepper Jack Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Jalapeño, Bacon & Pepperjack Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Prep time:
Cook time: 
Total:
Servings: 1 Sandwich

This recipe calls for double cheese using pepper jack and cream cheeses with tangy red pepper jelly and thinly sliced apples, topped with bacon, and grilled into gooey goodness.

Ingredients

2 slices Abigail’s Oven Jalapeño Cheddar sourdough
Pepper jack cheese
Butter
Tart apple (Granny Smith works great, but any apple will work)
Cooked bacon (3 slices per sandwich)
Cream cheese
Red chili pepper jelly

Instructions

Heat a skillet to medium heat. Butter at least one side of each slice of bread (could do both if you want it extra buttery). Smear cream cheese on one slice, then place 3 slices of crispy bacon on the cream cheese. On top of the bacon, place a half-inch (1 cm) thick slice of pepper jack cheese, covering the entire piece of bread, then top with 3-5 very thinly sliced tart apples.

Place that half of the sandwich in the skillet and lower the heat to medium-low. On the remaining slice, smear red chili pepper jelly, then place it on top of the other half of the sandwich in the skillet with the red chili pepper jelly next to the apple slices. Press the sandwich down with a pancake turner or sandwich press, and toast until golden brown.

Flip the sandwich over, and toast until the other side is golden and the cheese is melted (sometimes covering the pan will evenly distribute the heat and help melt the cheese faster). Remove from the skillet and enjoy this amazing sandwich with a fork and knife and a hearty soup on the side With Tomato Basil Soup on the side, this is a comforting and filling sandwich for lunch or dinner, or just about anytime.
