Vintage Thingie Thursday



Vintage Thingie Thursday is hosted at Coloradolady. This is a fun weekly party where we get to show off our vintage things. It is so much fun to check out what everyone else is showing.

I got this Better Homes and Gardens cookbook last month at Salvation Army. It was marked $3.99 but I got it for $1.99. "Best Buffets" was published in 1963. I love these old cookbooks. They are so much fun!




Here are a few glimpses inside.






Even a chapter for the boys!




Have a Happy Thursday!

  10. I love looking at old cookbooks too. I am wondering what "deviled bones" are.

  11. Hi Postcardy,
    Deviled bones are BBQ Ribs. The "Sauce Diablo" consists of:
    1 12 oz bottle of extra hot catsup
    1 T of celery see1/4 cup vinegar
    1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce
    1/4 tsp dry mustard
    1/4 tsp. Tabasco sauce

    9 lbs of beef rib roast bones

  15. Vintage cookbooks are so fun. I had to laugh at "High society suppers with franks and burgers".

  16. That bachelor's feast cracks me up! Just a bunch of guys standing around cookin' deviled bones, sippin' cider, and capping it all off with some Neiman Marcus Pie! You gotta love those old books. The recipes were great, and the pictures even better!
    Happy VTT!

  18. Oh my some of those older recipes are SO unhealthy aren't they?
    I can't believe we were so enthusiastic about them!

  19. i love vintage cookbooks too..yours is a gem!

  20. Maybe I'll have the boys over for a Bachelors feast next time you and your mom go shopping.

    We'll probably skip the cabbage bowls though...

    Come to think of it, I think the boys would like the high society franks and burgers better...

  21. I remember getting the whole set of these cookbooks when I got married many moons ago! I still have them in a box in the garage!
    I learned how to cook on them when I was first married!

  23. I wonder what people will think about today's cookbooks some 30-40 years from now?

  26. This vintage cookbook is a hoot! Love the glimpse into 1960s social ideas-the best are the tiered dish appetizers (how to make cheese, crackers and fruit fancy!) and the boys' dinner dessert-Neiman Marcus Apple Pie! Thanks for the chuckle!
