Hello to all of you pinky peep friends,
I sure hope this is finding you all well and happy on this beautiful, gorgeous, day..I seem to always enjoy my Sundays.. It's the only day of the week I don't feel rushed, and well ... completely crazy !! We always go to church and lunch, maybe run an errand or two and than home to do what ever I feel like doing.. Some days, NOTHING.. sounds BeSt..hahaha..
I seem to get really excited knowing Fall is not far off, and makes me want to cook and bake .. I was going through some cook books that were out, and this one always warms my heart.. It is my Betty Crocker cook book that I used in high school.. It brings back soo many memories, and good times.. I always loved to pick out a menu item, and than put it all together at school !! It made me feel so..well..homey and cozy..and yearn for the day I could do this in my home for my family.. Okay 30 yrs. later, and I'm thumbimg through the same book..Can you believe it has pink and green all over it ?! mmm.. maybe it was made just for mee !! The pictures inside are soo wonderful, it shows pretty ladies in dresses cooking meals and yummys for their families.. Actual families sitting down together for meal time.. WOW !! It's also soo fun to see what they use for ingredients.. Do you know most of the bake goods call for crisco, NOT butter, and they always SIFT dry ingredients together,to mix well, but also the sifting of air into the mixture.. It teaches me alot still..Very basic and easy.. (my kinda cooking)..It makes me realize why things we make as chocalate chip cakes and cookies don't taste the same as they used to.. We skip steps ladies, and have changed many ingredients along the way !! My belief is if your baking treats, do it the old-fashioned way, and enjoy them.. It's not like we eat these everyday Right ?!
It's been soo fun thumbing through this, this afternoon, and thought you might enjoy seeing this as well.. Did any of you sweet pinky peeps use this exact book in home ec..?! It's date of print is 1961.. I used it in 1978.. Gosh, she was old then..hahaha..
I know you are all busy and getting kiddos back to school and such as well, and I pray that all is well and good with each of you !! Hopefully you were all able to do something you LoVe to do today, and you were able just to kick your sweet, pretty tootsies up for awhile !! Praying too, that all my bloggy friends are feeling blessed and HIS LoVe is being felt in your hearts !! God is good ladies !! Blessings for a wonderful, happy week as you get back to the grind..uugghh..
Love and hugs to you all~
