We went to several garage sales on Saturday.
I purchased several cookbooks. The lady there said “Oh you are going to cook!” I replied “No I am only going to read them.” I like reading cookbooks, they are like short stories. I mix the contents in my head and see if I can figure out if we will like it or not. Or not happens a lot around here…as we are pretty much plain meat, potato, vegetable and fruit people. I am very allergic to some foods…so food adventures are best kept to a minimum.
The one from Iowa is an Italian Cookbook…I know nothing of Italian food but there must have been a few Italians in Iowa to write the book. The Akeley Minnesota Centennial Cookbook should be great fun to read, Akeley is about 45 miles away. The cookbook from Nye Montana is a Community Cookbook, Nye is a little berg with 272 people in South Central Montana.
These I call Frosted Shiny Brites.
These are from West Germany. Not technically Shiny Brites …more like Mercury Ornaments trimmed with glitter. They are most likely from the 1950’s.
This is the whole box. It was a dollar. I was pleased. There are three other Shiny Brites in the box and one satin thread ball from the 1970’s.
Chance is still enjoying his company.
