A Treasure Trove

Folks I am so excited! I have been researching recipes for the "Survey of the Decades" section on Retro Housewife, which has not been easy, and I dug up a treasure trove from the 1950s. The source? My father of all people! Turns out he had an unpublished booklet of recipes that military wives put together in the 50's. Said wives were from the Language Institute, or, at least their husbands were, so the recipe collections is somewhat of the World's Greatest Food Hits of the 50's.

As soon as I figure out how to get them off the paper and into my laptop, I will share!

Oh, I would love to see them out here!!! My husband is full-time National Guard and the wives around here don't do anything fun like that... I cannot wait to see what they are!!!
