Old Fashioned Recipes for the New Year

A day of worry is more exhausting than a day of work. ~John Lubbock

The new year is 15 days in, and I'm just catching up on my writing.  I love the holidays but the days are a whirlwind of activity that seem to last way past Christmas by the time we manage to visit everyone, and then recover.  Of course, having my twelve year old daughter and both my sons home always takes away from work as we watch movies, play board games and bake cookies.  That is also the reason it's my favorite holiday:)

My dad gave me some wonderful vintage magazines during our visit and I'll be sharing recipes and tips from many of them this month.   The first article revolves around meat recipes from January of 1928.  The graphic above is an advertisement I found from that year.  When I was growing up we shopped at an A & P grocery store, but that was in the 70's, not the 20's.  I'm not quite that old.  I like the advertisement because it shows the fashion of the times.

I think you'll enjoy the recipes and the tidbits on what was happening that year. You'll find it here: http://oldfashionedliving.com/1929-Meat-Recipes.html
