GIFT OF A VINTAGE COOKBOOK

Recently, I blogged HERE about finding a great old vintage cookbook.  A friend of the blog saw the post and contacted us and asked for our address, she said she had something to send to us.  

A few days later, we received this in the mail:

Round the World Meat Cookbook
It's an awesome vintage cookbook, entitled the Round The World Meat Cookbook, by Myra Waldo.  There are tons of great recipes, obviously with meat as the main ingredient, covering all different types of dishes from various and diverse countries.  It's an almost 50 year old cookbook and we love it!  It will go in a special place at the farm with our other vintage cookbooks.  We can't wait to find some recipes to cook, and of course share them here on the blog.

It came thoughtfully gift wrapped, in a really neat vintage paper (that we saved to use for some future project), and one of her children even made us a "Got Books?" bookmark (which we will forever keep with this book).  

The world of blogging is filled with such wonderful people!

Thank you sweet friend, it is much appreciated!
