|Ah, the vegetable bin. If you are a mother, trying to get her kids to eat
their vegetables, then try a few of the recipes below.
I remember both my parents, "Eat your vegetables. clean your plate. Don't
you know kids in China are starving?"
I don't know what one had to do with the other and with all that starving
going on in China, during those decades, it's a wonder China still exist.
Now, I understand there is real poverty in the world, and I am not making
light of that.
I am, however, poking fun at my parents and their rational in attempting
to creating clean vegetable platters of my sister and me.
I liked vegetables, but there is only so much food you can stuff in your
stomach at any one sitting. So, if, I must stuff something there, I always
preferred the more fattening tasty foods.
This is, perhaps, why I am a bit puffy myself now.
A better approach from my parents would have been, "Eat your vegetables
and you will be thin forever." A much better rational for teenage girls in the
60's and 70's.
I know I would have listened..................Yea, right.
|Now, here are the free vegetable recipes taken from
index cardes written during the decades of the 1950's,
60's, and 70's.
Mom's everywhere are still making us eat our vegetables.

Well I must say I just love your site. I was looking up some recipes. I don't know
if you have found this or not but When I saw old English cheese I too wondered
what it was so I looked it up and I found a few people wondering also I found it
But bascially it just means sharp cheddar cheese! Amazing the different words
they used! Have a great day!
The minute I read the email, I remembered the cheese. Although different today, if
I am not mistaken, it was wrapped in a sort of wax paper with a really cool design.
