Vintage Thingies Thursday




There may be a few taking a minute to share Vintage Thingies Thursday with Coloradolady. If so, trust you are enjoying a bountiful turkey meal. May today be a gift you will always remember.










This an old 1950 Betty Crocker cookbook that was given to me as a gift back then. It has served me well over the years.


Since this is turkey day, sharing from this book their method of getting the old bird ready for roasting.



Various recipes for dressing or stuffing as some people call it. However, it is hard to beat the old fashion method.

I think back then my mother still made stuffing by tearing up bread.

We save bread for months to make our stuffing out of. Actually, not just bread, anything of a bread-type, including cinnamon rolls, muffins, garlic bread - whatever is left over and not going to be eaten. It makes the best stuffing EVER! I have my first Betty Crocker cookbook also, and it still has the best pie crust recipe ever! Have a wonderful day!

My mom makes her stuffing using stale bread and includes,cinnamon, raisins and sage. Yum!

I got my first Betty Crocker cookbook from an old boyfriend for Christmas about 20 years ago. I still have it! lol

I make a squash casserole that is like a dressing. The recipe is on my blog. My husband makes a dressing from different breads, apples, pecans, sage, cranberries.

I love your "Gobbles of Love" and am curious about it's history.

Care to know an interesting tidbit? This week I learned something on The Food Network. The only difference between dressing and stuffing is that the former is cooked outside of the bird while the latter is cooked inside of the bird. And that's all I've got!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I love old cookbooks--the red and white covers of Betty Crocker make me nostalgic! I especially love reading the section on stocking your kitchen and what equipment was necessary for the year the book was published.

I love my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook that I received as a wedding gift back in the 70's. We still use it today! Happy Thanksgiving.

Your Gobbles of Love is so cute. I love my BH&G cookbook I believe I got when I graduated. Years later when I got married I received another one. Kept it for about 20 years then gave it to my daughter while I kept the old raggedy, used one from graduation!

We just go with the cornbread dressing, and some years it has oysters in it and some it has green chiles in it!!! But the base is good ol' cornbread!

Love your well-worn and gratefully used cookbook! The old cookbooks are treasures!
