I have to show my latest vintage cookbook acquisitions on here, they are just too good not to share!The first book on the left is an EBay purchase, the second was given to me by my Mum who thought of me when clearing out my nan’s kitchen cupboards recently. Thanks Mum!
The McDougalls booklet has no date on it, I estimate by looking at the pictures and style that it is from the late 70’s to early 80’s. I also have big apron envy of the lady on the cover. How cool is that pattern? Its right up my street!And look what I spotted – a Pyrex cup! The same as we have for our camper van. I also have tea towel envy. That orange flowered one would be perfect for the van.
The other recipe book is total Pyrex porn for a Pyrex perv like me. It was published in 1977 with lots of pictures of pretty casserole bowls in it. Plus the recipes are hilarious! I have photographed the best ones to share on here. Somehow I do not think I will be cooking any of them though!
A local(ish) bland dish. The food inside it that is, not the Pyrex bowl! Styled on a haystack.A classy dish to serve and impress your guests with at a dinner party maybe? Sorry, but it does not matter how you dress them up, marrows will always be tasteless slime.Giblets anyone?Or brains?Or if that has not wet your appetite, how about some hearts? This would be perfect as a romantic themed meal for valentines day! Bleugh!
