As I haven’t been doing any cooking worth blogging, I thought I’d share some of my recipe ephemera. This little Ministry of Food leaflet belonged either to my MIL or my husband’s grandmother. It came with the house, as did most of the really old recipe cuttings that I have managed to gather together.
The cover is interesting as it features both the image of a ‘packed lunch’ for the worker, in a factory, and also the traditional picnic hamper for a day out in the countryside.
The recipes are not too bad really, athough I don’t fancy Butter or Margarine extender, but I guess that was what you had to do when food was rationed.
Who’d have thought that there would be hamburgers and coleslaw on the picnic menu in 1946!
