Today I decided to clean out my cookbook
cabinet shelf. I came across a cookbook that belonged to my late aunt Tessie.
This recipe gave us a good laugh. A 10 cent bag of potato chips???? So I turned the cookbook over and saw it was dated 1955. The potato chip of our choice back then were made by a fairly local company named Backers. They are still in business today! I remember in 1962 stopping at the local grocery market while walking home from school. We could get nickel or dime candy bars and nickle and dime bags of chips too. Sodas were 10 cents with a 2 cents deposit. When you took the bottles back you could get your money back. In our case, we never took the cash. Earl's market had the best candy counter.
More interesting things found in this old book were some "hints". I'm going after my hand cream as soon as I'm finished typing!
Speaking of recipes, a friend told me about this blackberry lush recipe the other day. So today I cut the recipe in half and made it for the blacksmith and me. OMG is it good.
Here's the recipe!
To see what I did on Saturday check it out here. Osage Bluff Blacksmith.
