I did a big thrift store adventure yesterday. I hit up 2 Salvation Army's, 3 Goodwill's and 2 Christian community based thrift stores... and came away with a few odd things. But odd things in a good way. I also came away with 3 piece's of Pyrex too. I will show them off this weekend.
For now I am showing off a really interesting cookbook. "Our Favorite Desserts from Home Economics Teachers". It is filled with recipe's that where submitted from Home Economics teachers nationwide. And it is the second edition!
If I was to guesstimate... I would say this was from 1967.
The thing that I immediately loved about this book was the recipes are so so simple. But as I was thumbing through the book at the resale barn... I came across this recipe....
How could I not buy a cookbook that offers up a recipe for "Mud Hen Cookies"?! I get so tired of seeing the same old recipes offered in the cookie sections of newer cookbooks. I never heard of "Mud Hen Cookies" ..... but I have a new recipe to try out, that I like the looks of...
Then I came across this vibrant carrot spoon rest. She is not vintage. But she is pretty!
And worth it! I love this shade of bright orange.
I was hoping the stores would have had a better selection out on the floor. They all get slammed with inventory in late December. (for the tax write off, it needs to be there by Dec 31) So I am going to do another big adventure next week. Maybe there will be more to see.
