Something to ' digest' ! ;-)



Does anyone remember these little books and magazines?

They were published by Home and Freezer Digest.

I loved them because they were small and easy to handle!

As I was tidying my old school desk, yesterday, I came across this

copy, from December 1987.

I'd forgotten that it was in there...along with umpteen other things!




Anyway, this prompted me to rummage around the cupboard

 where I keep my cookery books....

and lo and behold this was the first thing I laid my hands on:




Armed with this one and the other books above, I sat down to briefly browse.




I wish this little mag still existed; you can't even find old copies!

There was so much useful info contained inside.




Which bird for Christmas, for instance.... and how to...deal with it!





I'd love to know if anyone remembers these magazines!


Meanwhile...

 Mr S and I have just enjoyed a weekend away.

We love Wells!

And Sunday morning in Wells was quite delightful.

We had our usual stroll, taking in the sights,

sounds and sunshine.











The day before we had taken part in the lovely Vintage Bazaar fair

at The Cheese and Grain, Frome.

Full of the usual vintage flavour, the stalls were a feast of fun

and included a wonderful mixture.










Oh it was a very fine weekend indeed!

Oh yes I remember these! My Mum used to get it, along with 'Family Circle' and 'Living' - all safe bets with children in the house. My dad once bought my Mum a copy of Cosmopolitan when she was ill and I think she found it deeply unsuitable - no recipes! I must have a few recipes cut out from Home and Freezer Digests - I certainly used their Hot Cross Bun recipe for years and one called 'Jumping Bunny Cheesecake' sits in my recipe book, never made but sweet looking (Jumping Bunnies ON it, not IN it!)

happiest of Chritmases to you both, you must think me terribly rude for not saying bye when we left last Saturday- just in a bit of a flap at the time!
see you next year

Ha showing my age, used to get this every month. Freezing was a new thing in the 1970's. Still have some favourite recipies in my folder form these books :-)
