Today it’ll be Show & Tell + Discussion. Tomorrow it’ll be Think & Do + Poll Question.
THERE IS A PLACE BETWEEN TRASH AND TREASURE WHEREIN ONE CAN FIND STUFF
STUFF being defined as interesting things, unique things, obscure things that are worthy of conversation but not much more.
In this case the STUFF is from a box I inherited that contains my grandmother’s handwritten cookbook, a couple of printed cookbooks, and other bits of information about food and drink.
Thus I give you Show & Tell.

SHOW & TELL
The STUFF featured in the above photograph has one noticeable thing in common: these recipe pamphlet and cookbook covers have the color red on them. Other than that they are about as random as can be.
They are in order of publication year:
1933 – The Art Of Mixing by Wiley and Griffith
1941 – Quick•easy RECIPES from MUELLER’S
1942 – THIS IS MY BOOK OF MAGIC RECIPES from The Borden Company
1943 – How to bake by the Ration Book from Swans Down
1949 – Aunt Chick’s Pies by Nettie McBirney
1963 – Joys of Jell-O from General Foods Corp.
1960s [?] – TRUDY TENDERFOOT MEETS REDDY KILOWATT from Ohio Edison Company

Anyone else feeling less guilty about not following through on Marie Kondo’s advice about getting rid of STUFF that doesn’t spark joy? Especially in light of the fact that STUFF often makes for good conversation starters?
Anyone know why red was [or is?] a popular color for the front of cookbooks?
Anyone try a new-to-you old recipe lately?
