Cookbook Wednesday, At Last!

Oh, I know this is Thursday.  But this week has been busy.  Indeed, in about an hour, I have to rush around like a crazy woman to get to yet another appointment!  But I couldn't let the week go by without participating in Cookbook Wednesday, could I?

AUNT BEE'S MAYBERRY COOKBOOK

Mark trudged out to the mailbox at the end of last week, and came back bearing a big manila envelope.  It was a present from the lovely and gracious Louise, our hostess at Months of Edible Celebrations.  She sent me a gift for carrying on with Cookbook Wednesday; I was delighted!  This is the first present, and it's a lot of fun.


We all grew up with Mayberry RFD.  And even if it wasn't our favorite show, it was great for a few laughs; there were plenty of characters on the show who were, at their cores, just like people we all knew, no matter whence our origins.

Louise knows me well; this is a general cookbook, with recipes from all varieties of food, which is my favorite type.

At the beginning of this cookbook, there are menus, some of which are not things you cook (soda pop and crackers)...

There are photos from the show, along with excerpts (presumably) from the script, interspersed with the recipes....

And pages of just recipes....

Along with things like this, which are more of a curiosity to city folk like me!

This is a fun cookbook, and a fun entry to Cookbook Wednesday, once again, properly hosted by Louise at Months of Edible Celebrations!

Happy Thorsday, everyone; I'll probably see you again on Monday!

Hi Marjie!

Busy, busy and the wedding is still months away.

I'm delighted you enjoyed the book Marjie. I thought you might get a kick out of the Mayberry photos even if the recipes are fairly general.

Thank you so much for hosting Cookbook Wednesday for us in February. You might want to rethink your offer to host in June with that schedule of yours most likely getting more hectic.

Louise is so nice to all of us, isn't she?

I watched that show when I was a kid. The cookbook looks fun & filled with good recipes. What a nice gift.

I saw this on my Kindle daily books list a couple days ago, bit since I wasn't a fan of the TV show, I passed.

Today's offering however is something I probably need - Rosie's Bakery All Butter, Cream Filled, Sugar Packed Baking Book. I know it's bad, but it sounds so good.

The Knight might like that cookbook, not that he uses cookbooks! How did Louise know you needed a pre-wedding present?

I think I have that one somewhere in my collection!
