I found some old cookbooks

Well I went to my dad's today to collect setimental things. That was hard. But I was looking in the cabinets in his kitchen and found some pretty old cookbooks.

Family Circle Favorite Recipes 1977
Homemade Bread 1969

And here's the real kicker

Pillsbury's 4th Grand National 100 Prize Winning Recipes NEW 1953 cookbook !!!

I thought that was pretty cool and I wanted to share with you guys.

Very cool, middie! I'm sure they provided a good distraction to such a hard job. You'll have to try out some of the recipes!

Really nice remembrances of your dad.

When you look through the cookbooks you'll find it interesting how much recipes and cookbooks have changed over the years.

Oh come on... really old cookbooks? I have some older than that that belong to me and were purchased by me. Julia Child's were from the 1960s and I do not consider those to be relegated to the the thrift shop of oldies! I have 600+ cookbooks and many are 1940s-1950s. I also have some classic of the early 1900s as a couple of The White House Cookbook that have recipes for removal of freckles! It doesn't work! Many of the classic cookbooks of Irma Rombauer are of the 1950s that are updated occassionally. Betty Crocker has changed over the years by dropping recipes and adding ones that are thought to be more timely.

I guess everyone's frame of reference is different.
