Have I told y'all that I collect vintage cookbooks? Weird hobby, I know. I just love them- 1940's, 50's and early 1960's are my favorites.
So One King's Lane had a sale of old cookbooks, and I just could not resist. The children's cookbook from the 40's shown above? Charming as hell, with the Shirley Temple lookalike model.
1958's Thoughts for Buffets is a dream. Full of menus- my favorite. I just love imagining imaginary parties, swishing around in a full skirt, preparing the aspics and rings of vegetables.
My neighbor is a retired agriculture professor with the most amazing vegetable garden. I got fresh broccoli all winter, and now spring onions are arriving on my back porch. I am overwhelmed with delight- these things are HUGE and delicious.
