If I’ve learned one thing from all of you, it’s that when it comes to collecting, there’s something for everyone.
Or someone for every thing.
And with that philosophy in mind, occasionally some of those things come home with me from yard sales.
Things not all that long ago I might have passed by.
Exhibit A. This jumbled box of hundreds of recipes.
At first I thought I would just send them off to my etsy shop but as I started to photograph them for the shop listing, I got caught up in the story they told.
A story involving decades of foods that were once fashionable in the kitchen or at least were in style according to the chef who was in charge of this collection.
What event was this little menu for? I don’t know what Under-the-Sea-Salad is but anyone who serves two kinds of bread AND cake and ice cream is okay with me.
A scribbled recipe for Magic Modeling Goop on the envelope for a sympathy card – could this be the original Play-Doh formula?
And my favorite of them all, the double secret and highly coveted ingredient list for Wacky Cake. :-)
