Suzie's 365 photos days 163: aged

I had to chuckle when I saw Suzie's photo prompt for today - day 163: aged - there was no way that I was going to put a photo of myself, although that would certainly be fine for 'aged', then I thought of showing a photo of John, who is older than me .... but in the end I've opted to show a photo of my oldest cookery book which was given to me in 1964 - you can tell that it has been well used:

I thought I'd just show you a peep inside - at the time this book was published pressure cookers were being used quite a bit (I confess that I was never keen because of all the steam ... scary!!) - before the age of microwaves.

A lot of the information is outdated now, but there are lots of recipes that are still very useful to refer to - the book still gets used from time to time.


  1. I love old cook books- my mum had one that had a bookmark in one section for my dad to make cakes with us and I would love to own THAT cookbook!

  2. I used to have a lot of "vintage" cookbooks.. i just love how the recipes can make wholesome foods for little money!
    i also love my pressure cooker.. dh's choice is the slow cooker mine is the pressure :D my mum used to prepare a lot food in the P/C so i guess i learnt from her.

  3. beautiful book.
    My mum still has her pressure cooker. It is older than me, to tell how old it is !!! xx

  4. looks like a well loved book, my mum has a pressure cooker too and uses it for par boiling veg for the freezer, apparently its good for beetroot too at keeping the smell in :)

  5. Great idea! Congratulations!
