I discovered the original ad for the recipe cards on youtube. I remember those monthly instalment plans fondly. As a child I started collecting an encyclopedia, but stopped once I realised how onerous the cost would be if I continued. Thank goodness someone out there decided this box was a good investment. And thank goodness I stumbled upon the same box in Salvos. The rest as they say is history.
Vintage phones, suitcases and books are cool. What about vintage food? Join us as we test our cooking skills and stomachs as we selectively cook our way through the Australian Women's Weekly recipe box. Some of the recipes truly are strange...dare we say awwful? Let us know if you try any of the recipes!
Here's a photo of us. Mabel's all dressed up to go to a fancy dress ball. And Mary is being a 3 year old.
