The Crazy Suburban Mom: Retro Tuesday from my kitchen

Retro Tuesday from my kitchen

One of the reasons I love Freecycle is because every so often something just spectacular pops up.  Last week someone had to cull her beloved vintage cookbooks and man, I so felt her pain.   I totally would have taken them all - She wanted to keep them together - but, I just couldn't.  I recently had to let some go and told her so but this I wanted so bad...

I said, please oh please let me have it....  I didn't hear from her for a few days and I thought she found some kind soul with lots of room to take all her jewels but then she wrote and asked when I could pick it up.

 It's a Betty Crocker Recipe card file ( circa 1971 I think) with the recipes and other stuff like dividers .... some little book business in the back.  I don't know stuff that came with it I suppose.   There are three sections without cards which are - Hm....  Recipes kids can make, something I can't remember and Impromptu gala something or others...

I'm kind of sad about not having the Impromptu thing because those recipes must have been grand.  Or cheesy.

Either way I would have loved them.

I know Retro Tuesday is usually from a magazine but this was so cool I couldn't resist!

My mother had one of these, but she didn't have the whole collection either. She was missing about 8 of the sections. It does have some really good recipes in it. You will have a lot of fun going through it. Enjoy.
