Every Cookbook by 2012

Every Cookbook by 2012 – Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book 1953 Edition

I saved this cookbook by making the Corn Muffins.This cookbook is an exact replica of the 1953 version. Some of the ingredients that are called for are not items that we cook with much today including shortening. The muffin recipe called for shortening so I substituted that for margarine (essentially the same thing but I had no butter). I still have to figure out what to do with the rest of the cornmeal I bought on a whim a while ago. Corn fritters, corn bread or… really I don’t cook with it. The kids tried them but didn’t love the corn muffins. I will be saving the book anyways because there are some interesting recipes.

A few other cookbooks made it into the donate pile. I’m getting cutthroat! 2012 will be here before we know it and this project needs to be completed. After the cookbooks are sorted out I will move onto my non-fiction.

Where have I been the last few weeks? It seems like forever…

It seems like I haven’t posted in years. Our computer broke last week so I haven’t been able to mess with my blog at all. Today we bought a laptop. We couldn’t take it anymore!

The brown bag challenge is over and it was a success. I did buy coffees at the Starbucks next door to work during the month but decided that was not cheating. The first month of Kindergarten came and went without too many ordeals. We also went to Las Vegas in September. I will be posting about some close-to-zero waste meals I ate while there.

Have a great day! Promise another post tomorrow,



About stephanieough

Wife, mom, concerned citizen of the earth. Striving towards intentional living rather than blindly following. Former Education Specialist for a corporation, I have now taken a step back to spend time with my family and work closer to home. Hoping to reduce our waste through refusing, reducing and reusing so that we will not have to recycle as much. Also, I love to explore zero-waste fast food and take pictures of my sucesses. I'm a fan of British comedies like Red Dwarf and Black Adder, Kevin Smith and his movies, Asian food, documentaries, biographies and going to Las Vegas on vacation. If someone told me I could only listen to the Beatles for the rest of my life I would die happy.
