What's this? ;-)
Well, it's from this book, which I gave to the birthday boy at the meal we cooked recently.
This is a hilarious book, if you haven't come across it. Me and my eldest spent a happy 30 minutes laughing our heads off at the recipes and comments inside. Just look what delights it has... Crown roast of frankfurters, anyone?
Nestled lovingly around a shredded cabbage base!
It's full of adverts that appeared in the 1950s, with added text. It's very funny indeed.
How about this one...
Making the wife's job easier... canned and processed food. If you can open it, you can cook it!
So, we decided to go for it and try out the banana candle.
We added squirty cream.
Our guests were relieved the whole menu wasn't from the book! Next time we'll have to go to town (if I can re-borrow the book) (though I'm nervous now about going to their house now!!!).
Progress on the house
I thought I'd give you a quick peek at the understairs bathroom, which is coming along painfully slowly. We've been here 10 years, and it feels like we'll never get it done. But it's good when you see small progress of what you want.
