Vintage Cookbook Friday Fun

Here are a couple of gems from the Today's Woman Cook Book (1953).  First up, "Flavor-ize Your Canned Vegetables."  Booze helps, too!


This one is from the same book, but it fell out of the book and wasn't actually published in it.  It's a recipe for rum balls, written out on an old computer punch card.  I LOVE finding things like this in my vintage cookbooks!  It's a pretty good recipe, but I'd up the rum. ;)

Easiest Appetizer Ever

Here's a super easy appetizer that takes about 30 seconds to prepare.  It's best if you make it a few days ahead of time and let it set in the refrigerator and marinate.

Curried Olives

A little olive oil
A couple of squeezes of lemon juice 
Curry powder
Ground garlic and onion powder

Refrigerate at least a few hours - a few days is even better!

Wear Something Gaudy Day

This week's episode is online, wherein we celebrate Wear Something Gaudy Day!  Click here to watch.  This October 17 holiday was declared by the character Larry on "Three's Company" and is the perfect opportunity to shed your sartorial inhibitions and wave your freak flag for the day! It also features plenty of booze and a garish cheese ball, should you wish to go all out and throw a party for the occasion.




I think I'm also done tinkering with our website for the time being.  Click here to see the latest version.  I've put buttons for our various social media sites as well, so be sure to connect with us on those pages if you're there!  I'm particularly enamored of Pinterest these days...
