Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!

I hope everyone enjoys the holiday weekend! I thought it would be fun to share a couple of ads from 1949 & 1950 that feature 4th of July recipes in case anyone is looking for ideas for their own 4th of July menu. Neither of them looks very appetizing but it’s interesting to see what a housewife may have cooked up for her family back then to celebrate the holiday. Just click on the images to see them full size.

Happy 4th of July!

    Delightful! Love old food ads. I wouldn't turn my back on that hot dog display. No sir-ee! 🙂

  3. Happy 4th of July to you both! We really enjoyed the holiday weekend and managed to get some shopping in as well. The fireworks show in Napa was amazing!
