Something Old. This image was scanned from the book "Betty Crocker's Cook Book for Boys and Girls" Copyright 1957. Apparently you can still buy this book on Amazon for $11.53. I bought mine at a garage sale for $1. I love everything about this book from the cute retro illustrations and photos to the quasi racist recipe called Old Black Joe which is a bowl of Wheaties with a prune on top with bits of apple for the eyes, mouth, and ears. A banana and cherry make the hat. When I saw it I actually gasped. I guess 1957 was a long time ago.
I love this recipe because of the little bird floating by the girl and the fact that I won't have to go to the drug store for my sodas any more. Hey wait, can you still buy Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge Frosting Mix?
