Happy Summer Everyone!!!
How was your first day of summer?
Well, Honey and I spent the day cooking and relaxing. We thought there would be no better way to start off the summer than to grill (well, indoor grill. We do live in NYC. Outdoor space is minimal) burgers, drink some raspberry hard cider and eat the lemon ice box pie that I made!!!
Here is some some Instagram pics of the meal
I have to admit that I ate most of the pie. I think Honey only had one piece...Ooops...
YUMMMMM!!! It was a great day! After all of that we watched "You've Got Mail". LOVE that movie!!!! Everytime I see it I get the urge to see "The Shop Around the Corner" of which "You've Got Mail" is loosely based.
Then today my June 1956 issue of Good Housekeeping arrived!!
I though I would give you guys a peek.
It's filled with GREAT photos and articles and advertisements!
How cute is this shoe ad!?!?
These mixers haven't changed much. I had one almost identical a few years back. It was my first ever stand mixer.
It's great to know that Kitchen Aid was around in the 50s...that means I can use my Kitchen-Aid stand mixer next week!! Whew!!
A recipe for Monterey Souffle Salad made with Star-Kist tuna (really just a weird gelatin tuna thing)
Ooohh!! There was a neat article about making your hallway pretty. Love the pics of 50s furnishing
A super cute wave lotion ad. I wonder if it really made the hair that much easier to wave?
There were a lot of hair and beauty advice columns. (I tried to make it larger so that you can read a bit if you'd like). This one is about how to save your hair from the steamy summer weather. Including getting a permanent. Do people still get those? I remember they were still around in the 80s. I had many a friend with frizzy permed hair. This young lady's hair looks super elegant and smooth.
The magazine is also filled with short stories. I have yet to read them all but the interests vary. There are romance, suspense stories and some non fiction .
And of course, there is tons of fabulous 50s fashions!
I'm completely in love with this little red suit!!
This is all just a tiny bit of what is in the magazine! I can't wait to start collecting more. The only problem will be where to store them. I already have one closet full of modern cookbooks and cooking magazines. I'm afraid I may need another to store the vintage ladies magazines and cookbooks I plan on getting. Oh well, I'll worry about that later!!!
