Fridays Hops

I do not know about you, but I am so thankful that tomorrow is Friday! I love to regroup on the weekend, spend extra time with Hubby and hopefully see some of my children.

To get ready for a fun weekend,  I will be linking up with:
Dollycas's Thoughts

1. How many cookbooks do you own?
I own 28 cookbooks, but I have at least a GAZILLION recipes that I have downloaded from different sites on the internet. These random pieces of paper are in a folder, not in any order, and let me tell you it is a mess. I bought a 3 ringed binder to organize them but have not taken the time to start this daunting project!
My favorite cookbooks were found after my mother passed.  These cookbooks were owned by my Great Grandmother, Grandmother and Great Aunt . The earliest is dated 1904 and the latest was from 1935. 
This one, from 1904, does not have the cover or backing.
The book in the center was used by my Great Aunt in her cooking class, 1922!
My treasures!

2. What is the most used electrical appliance in your kitchen?
The refrigerator because it is running all the time!

3. How many nights per week do you have take-out, delivery or fast food?
We seldom have take-out, or fast food, but we did go to Smashburger Tuesday night. I had a procedure Tuesday afternoon and was not allowed  solid food since the night before. To say I was starved, was an understatement!  Hubby treated me to a Smashburger and Root Beer Float!

I will also be linking with:

I hope you have a wonderfully weekend,


  1. Never hear of Smashburger but I bet it was good.

  2. Greetings from Australia, what a marvelous looking blog..I am a new follower and found you on Follow Friday.

    my blog...

  3. I agree with the others, Smashburger sounds great! That's a lot of cookbooks...they're everywhere here!

  4. I think all your cookbooks are great just to look at! I have a lot too... many I bought just because I paged through it and found one recipe I liked.. how crazy is that.. but I have used all of them from time to time.. the best recipes though are those I dream up in my head... Nice post.

  5. Never heard of Smashburger, but it sounds heavenly!

  6. Hope your procedure was painless as possible:) Glad you got to go to Smashburger, I know it must have been a welcomed sight!!!
    I love the cookbooks, old ones are so fun to look through, just to see some of the different ingredients they may have used. Plus they usually were much more healthier to cook!
    Have a wonderful weekend with the family!
    Love you,

  7. Nice collection of cookbooks! Never heard of Smashburger but sure do want a burger now. LOL

  8. What a wonderful treasure you have in those cookbooks! I too used to have a folder I was always going to organize and I'm sure it is in a box somewhere and will probably find it when I follow through on my plan to get this house organized. :)

  9. Absolutely great blog, Shawn! Thanks for all your support and love you have given me during my surgery days (upcoming.) To say I'm scared to death would be saying it lightly! But with beautiful friends like you, how can I lose? Have a great weekend!

  10. Hello! I noticed you had been round at my blog and thought that I would stop by.

    I absolutely love those old cookbooks that you have got. Have you cooked any of the receipes to see what they are like?

  11. This is embarrassing but I own 54 cookbooks. I only really use two LOL!
    Great blog ;)
