My sister just got engaged! Eeee! Congratulations to Mel and Ben!
Ben's family and my family have been good friends since the early 80s, so this is all kinds of wonderful and weird. Funny how life sometimes works out, eh?
Internet, let's show them some love!
If you comment below with some marital advice (it doesn't have to be from the 50s!) and / or a note of congratulations for the happy couple, you will be automatically entered in a draw for a chance to win one of three vintage cookbooks from my personal 50s Housewife Experiment collection.
Isn't bribery grand?
Up for grabs are:
- The Good Housekeeping Casserole Book - Oven dishes easy to prepare and serve. Includes
gut-turningmouthwatering pictures of Beet Pie Alamode, Sandwich Casserolette and Oyster Macaroni Casserole
- The Good Housekeeping Quick 'N' Easy Cook Book - Time-saver dishes for today's busy woman. Discover the secrets to making Pennsylvania Pretzel Soup, Jellied Fruit with Speedy Custard Sauce and something misleadingly called Ham Glamour
- *My personal favourite* The Good Housekeeping 10 P.M. Cook Book - Refreshments designed with guests in mind. Features recipes for such gastronomical mistakes as Tropical Tuna Mold, Frosted Party Sandwiches and the infamous Frank n' Bean Bake!
Please note that all of these cookbooks are small, softcover, about 68 pages in length, were printed in 1958, are in horrible shape (some tears and stains, loose binding, taped covers) and have no real value. *Wow, what amazing prizes.*
Even if I personally know you (and I probably do thanks to the fact that almost all my readers are related to me and read this blog out of obligation and / or pity) you're still eligible for the draw! If you want to be included, please include some way I can contact / identify you in your post (like linking your name to your website, typing in your e-mail address in the post, signing in to Blogger, or identifying yourself e.g."this is your father, you dorky daughter of mine").
Three winners will be randomly drawn on Thursday, November 11th at 6pm EST. The cookbooks will be randomly awarded to the winners (but feel free to state your preference of which one you'd rather get - if it's possible, I'll try to accommodate!).
Good luck - and get sharing your happy thoughts, good vibes and marital advice for my sister and her fiance!
UPDATE: The wieners have been announced!
