If It's Fiber...

Tuesday, October 10, 2006

I love finding old cookbook pamphlets from various manufacturers at thrift stores, library book sales, and the like. This is one of my more recent acquisitions from Swift Meats.
What I love the most about it are the party plans they have listed. You have "The Slumber Party" with a Hobo party theme, "The High School Hop" with a Balloon party theme, "The Couple's Potluck" with a Backstage Theater Party theme, "The After-five Hostess" for the After-five Hostess Entertains theme, and, my favorite, "THe Stag Party with a Stag Party theme.
Each party plan has a full menu listed along with decorations you can make and games to play during the party. Recipes for the menu items are in the rest of the pamphlet. Almost all of which involve some form of Swift Meats product.
An interesting note about his one is that it has a page with some sample calorie breakdowns and the average caloric intake that it bases its listing on is 1,800 calories. Most things today use a 2,000 calorie diet as its base. And let me tell you, these recipes are not very low fat!


  • OMG I so love these little cookbooks. Lucky you for your find.
