I really, really love words. When junking, finding an old dictionary can make my day. Finding an encyclopedia dictionary, well, I'm good for a whole week.
I also really, really love food. And not only do I love books, but I love magazines. If I find an article, or an idea, or a recipe, I tear and save. I know, so old school. So this week I finally began sorting through a year of torn out recipes, cutting and pasting (in real life) so that I might actually use (some of) them more often.
A few years ago my mom made each of us three girls a recipe book with copied pages of my Grandma's special recipes, and it is a treasure to read, especially her handwritten ones. This one is for Salmon Loaf, surprisingly really good.
Along with finding a 1990 Webster's illustrated encyclopedia dictionary, I found this Webster's Children's dictionary, inscribed to Lester Jean Kile (which is the first name??), from Mother and Daddy Christmas 1936...
and these vintage kitchen reference books. Maybe my husband will build me some Modern Kitchen Cabinets. However, I don't think I will be donning my apron while cooking dinner this week.
This letter flashcard found it's way home from my mom's stash this weekend at the Two Women Barn Bazaar outside of Spokane, WA. She still has some that she is bringing to The Farm Chicks show next weekend...so next week, sneak peeks!!
