A while back at the thrift store I spied a yellow box. I thought it looked like a good lil storage container and when I went to pick it up, it weighed about 20 pounds. What the? I opened it up and saw that it was filled with vintage Betty Crocker recipe cards. OHMUGERD.
There are SO many crazy cards in here, I wasn’t sure which to share with you. I mean, so I go with “Salads for Every Occasion”? “Men’s Favorites”?? The intriging “Come for Coffee” ??? But I had to go with “Recipes Children Can Make” and “Children’s Parties” because they were just OH-SO festive! I really don’t think I need to explain, now, do I?? Take a gander at THIS:
And now let’s BRING ON THE PARTIES!
Oh who doesn’t love a balloon???
Oh woe to the poor kiddo who gets a “PATRIOTIC BIRTHDAY” with little George Washington LOG CAKES…..I love these wacky cards so much! Do you have a favorite??
Recently I went to a Midcentury BBQ where we all made dishes from cookbooks and recipe cards just like this. It was amazing! I’ll be sharing that next week….have you ever made anything from an old cook book?? Everything looked adorable/scary/fun/fabulous, but shockingly some things actually TASTED REALLY GREAT!
