My mother-in-law, Miss Joyce, helps each year with the church garage sale. I always am the recipient of many exciting and strange gifts. This year among the treasures I received was this awesome cookbook!

A great TBT Sussie Sutton but I am going to have to pass on any recipe with "tongue" in it!

I hope you are safe from the flooding?!!

The flooding here is crazy! I went to Bellaire and 610 to take some documents to a title company. I was so scared that Braes Bayou would be out of its banks. It wasn't and it was clear of standing water. I did notice that on the way back on Hwy 288 that I could see a debris trash line high enough to submerge an 18-wheeler.

That's a pretty neat gift and a look back at the past. But I'm with Lisa and will pass on the tongue salad, or anything with tongue

Hope all is well!

Hi Sussie -love those old recipies.  I have an old church cookbook too.

I love old books. I have some primer readers that I read when I was a young kid in school. But I love the cookbooks as you can sometimes find a forgotten recipe and rediscover something great to eat.

Good evening Sussie Sutton ,  Just about anything, but not tongue salad.  I'll pass on that.  Old cookbooks are fun to read.

I have actually eaten tongue before, but I was not aware of it. It was good. However, it was cooked something like Mexican fajitas. But Tongue Salad there is no way dude.

We ate cow's tongue when we were little.  Of course, we didn't know what it was at the time.  Pretty gross to think about now...

LOL! Evelyn Johnston same here.  I was just commenting to Larry Johnston about that very fact.

That cook book reminds me a little of one I found in Amish Landcaster County, Pennsylvania.  It was yellowed with time, but had the most wonderful recipes in it.

You should post some of those recipes in that Amish cookbook.

The pear and cheese is about the only thing on that page I'd want to eat.

But what a cool book.  I'd love you to share some of the entrees and side dish pages too.

I suppose there is no reason why I should not post some of them.

I have my mother's cookbooks and remember her reading them in the 50's especially following recipes. I treasure my mother's book too. I think I might pass on the tounge salad. I will leave it all for you! Thanks Sussie Sutton.

My mom did not really know how to cook since her mom passed when she was in 4th grade.  My dad showed her how to cook. He was awesome and taught me some tricks too! Mom got the hang of cooking and is still pretty good at it. Dad was the guy who showed me what a cookbook was.

Sussie love it, I collect cookbooks and this is so funny... Diane would not touch Tongue in any way shape or form but I grew up eating it with horseradish sauce:))Endre

p.s.: my mother was born in 1926:))

Like I said to someone I have eaten tongue before and the way it was prepared it came out quite tasty. However, it takes way too long to prepare tongue. Plus, it sounds and looks so gross.

I have many old cookbooks and some of the recipes are very odd. I believe I will pass on the tongue salad.

Yeah... that recipe was pretty disgusting.

I used to have a similar old cookbook. Now I just have the page from it that has the apple crisp recipe I love on it. I never used the rest of the book so I tossed it.

I will pass on the tongue recipe, thank you!

That's funny!  I have eaten tongue and it's really pretty good... kind of like SPAM.  But how about that recipe for candle salad below... that's pretty easy to make.
