We got our wish! We had a white Christmas in Dallas! It started snowing on Christmas day and stuck almost right away. Can you tell I'm excited? It was just enough to cover everything with a pretty blanket of white.We had a really nice holiday! How about you?
Here's the recipe book I told you about before Christmas. I got my Mom's old recipe card boxes after she died.I went through and pulled and color copied the ones I wanted to use. I made a book for my brother, my son, and one vegetarian version for other son.
Since I was short on time, I used pre-made recipe books from Hobby Lobby(used my 40% off) and just glued in the recipes.These books have the pages, recipe dividers and extra pages so you add more later on. I added a few vintage pictures that I had of relatives in the kitchen or cooking.
Below is my dear Mom pouring champagne for a Christmas party. Check out that apron!! I added just a few embellishments-since these were for guys.
The most important thing was to have the recipes in the original hand writing. They have the stains and spots on them.Some were even in my great grandma's handwriting.
My sons loved them for Christmas, and the one for my brother is in the mail. I even included some weird Jello mold recipes my Mom used to make for parties. I mean, like green jello with carrots, pineapple and shrimp. Does anyone remember those? I'm glad those are not used anymore-UGH!
Thank you so much for all the Christmas and New Years wishes. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!I've put away all the decorations and am in organization mode. I am working on another mini redo project. Back to business as usual.
