Reminiscing over old cookbooks.
I love old cookbooks, especially the ones that come from churches. I was going through some that my mother in law have and thought I'd share with you why I love them so much. This cookbook comes to us from Sacred Heart Parish Cassel in Marathon, Wisconsin in 1970.

I also like the last hint on the helpful hints page. It says "To keep honey soft, add 1/4 lb. of butter to 1 qt. of fresh honey. Mix well. Will stay soft and you won't have to butter bread separately." Huh, what bread?!
Here's an example of a recipe a particularly enjoy:
Where's the chicken under ingredients? How much chicken?
