Retro-Wednesday.....









Because of the convenience of modern technology and Google, you can search and get any recipe' that your hungry tummy desires. In my opinion, that fact alone will someday make Classic Cookbooks like this obsolete!
I got the idea for this post a few weeks back because of a post by Susie over at Clean and Crazy! This 'Bible' of cooking was first published in 1975, and I've been cramming and clipping and stuffing articles and food tips in it for 30 years!!
As I was perusing the pages, I came across a couple of box covers from Land-O-Lakes Butter. Hehehehehe.....
Anyone male from the Mid-West that is over 40 years of age, knows whats coming next...
Take a sharp knife or razor blade, and cut along both sides and the bottom of the butter box that the Indian maiden is holding in front of herself.
Then fold up from the bottom of the label, about two half-inch folds.
Lift up Pocahontas' buttery flap, and see what treasures she is hiding!!
Dont'cha just Love it?
Peace...!!!

LOL! i haven't thought of that butter trick in eons. i'm not a mid-west male but i do know that trick and it still makes me giggle.

clean and crazy said...

Ms Hen said...

G-Man said...

I don't know how to create a hyper-link either!
But if you only have one blog, what difference does it make?
Just click on the pic!!!

Serena said...

I never saw anyone cut up the butter carton before -- but if I ever do, now I'll know what they're doing.:)

javajazz said...

Pocahontas

G-Man said...

Sherry...Do they have Land-O-Lakes down there?

Lana...She has Buttery flaps!

Serena said...

Of course we do! We even have indoor plumbing.:)

Cindy said...

Are you kidding? Really, that can not be true regarding the butter. Oh, now I gotta get my exacto knife and cut up the butter box. Hey, I live in a house full of men. They need to know.

Cindy said...

btw, I had the Joy of Cooking book in the late 70's and it has been my MOST used book for 30 years. For some reason, of late...I'm making up my own recipes. I prefer to think that I'm REALLY a good cook OR, I've become lazy.Whatev

the walking man said...

So now you have retroed the Joy of Cooking into a soft core Joy of Sex?

Well the butter comes from the cream and the milk has to come from somewhere. Now you have my mind churning.

Shadow said...

damn. only a boy would've figured that out... hilarious!

Susan at Stony River said...

Hey Galen, that's a late-edition Joy you've got; Irma Rombauer first published 'Joy of Cooking' in 1931 with her own money, then again in 1936, and it's been updated and revised in countless editions since, with the help of her sister and kids. I used to be a librarian for the Culinary College in Baltimore, who has a whole shelf of these things. My favourite version is from 1977, and I've worn out three copies LOL.

As to the Land o' Lakes lady... Jeez the ingenuity of adolescent males!! ROFL!!

Roxy said...

hmmmmm, someone has too much time on their hands, lmaoooooo!!!! too funny!

Lou said...

What a coy maiden!

Prayer Girl said...

I have that "Joy of Cooking".

Naughty boys in the Mid-West need to grow up. :)

Susan said...

G-Man -The Simpsons showed us that one way before you. As for the Jy of Cooking, I don't cook. Ever read the Joy of Sex? You could use butter in that book too *smirk* LOL

G-Man said...

Irish Susan...
You are exactly right about 'Joy's History. This was about a 1978 printing of the 1975 edition.
Thank You Ms. Mensa...:-)

Naughty Susan....
I prefer Olive Oil!

Susan said...

Naughty Susan says, "ROFL!!!" Hurry up G-Man post post post. I can't hold back any longer. I need release! LOL
