Freaky Friday

22 Aug


Welcome to Freaky Friday.
I am the lucky owner of a set of recipe cards from 1973, a lot of recipe cards, and most of them are a bit freaky!  I thought I’d share some of my thoughts and possible ways to update these recipes. Some cards  are just too far gone and can’t be fixed but hopefully, at least I can get you laughing.  Now don’t be afraid because some of these recipe cards have a good foundation for creative recipe ideas.  I am always up for suggestions and comments.
We have come a long way baby…

As you can see this card is marked as “children’s favorites,” hmmm maybe not.

It may have been a good snack after recorder practice in 1972 but let’s talk about how we can make it better.
