This week, I would like to show you a rather unusual book. Well...you might not think it is unusual, but I do. I have never seen one like this book in all of my treasure hunting rounds.
My mom's very dear friend, Latrell gave me this book a few months ago. I was so pleased with this gift and I have enjoyed reading and looking through this little book. It is a real treasure. Little did Latrell know, but my childhood dream was to become a home economics teacher....that never did transpire, but I have a great book to remind me of my dreams. This is one book I will always keep and treasure, it is most special, given by a very special lady, who I am happy to call my friend too.
This is a vintage Home Economics book,titled The Family's Food, dated and copyright 1937.
I could not tell if this was used in High Schools or College, none the less, it is a wealth of information...even for someone who is a fairly decent cook!
Once you look through the sections, read the material, then plan your own meals....you are sure to be a success.
I bookmarked this recipe. I tend to shy away from things that have yeast as an ingredient. I was super excited to see that this doughnut recipe does not call for yeast. I am going to try this out in the near future.
Here are some great pictures in the section about setting your table. Just look at all the glassware, and descriptions of each.
How about a section on choosing fine china and descriptions of patterns and colors. I could not believe this was in this little book.
And if that is not enough, how about everyday dishes? A wealth of information. I sure don't have any trouble finding pleasing designs in dishes...in fact, I tend to find too many that please my eye, so this subject was a little amusing to me.
There are even pictures showing wonderful places to have your meals other than the kitchen table. Does this not look inviting on a summer morning? I loved this photo. Remember this book was issued in 1937!
Here is the back page of the book. Look at the price. That is most definitely a vintage price for sure!
I just could not leave this post without a little bit of color. Here is my sweet little book with a couple of vintage tea towels. I just love the little dog in the flowers, and the red with the red birds is a favorite too. I purchased these at an antique store, and I think I only paid a couple of bucks for them.
Yes, this picture does belong in this post! I just love all my Vintage Thingies Thursdays gals. This post had something to do with cooking, and well, the other night I was slicing onions and this fits in with cooking.....See the heart???? I know I am a bit strange, but I thought that was cute and had to get the camera. Let it serve as a reminder to look closely at everyday things...you never know when a surprise might pop up when you least expect it.
Have a great week everyone! Thanks for showing up every week to share your vintage treasures with us.
