In all of the years that we’ve lived in New Mexico, we’ve never been to Denver, Colorado. We’ve been all over the western half of Colorado, but Denver and the surrounding area has alluded us for some reason. That all changed last week. I had a conference in Denver so Bobby arranged his schedule so he could go with me and we do some sightseeing on a couple of afternoons I had off.
One afternoon we drove to Littleton, a small town (suburb) a little southwest of Denver. It was a quaint little place and the old town area had a few shops that were right up my alley. There were two small antique shops housed in century old homes and around the corner on Main Street were two fabulous spice shops. In one of the antique shops I found this 1930’s recipe book that was written as a promotional for Worcester Salt. I thought it to be a perfect match for the 1930’s book that my mother-in-law gave me – The Art of Cooking and Serving, a promotional for Crisco. Both books are a hoot! I’ll be sharing some of the comments and recipes with you in the fall. Just as a teaser, the Worcester Salt book recommends boiling summer squash in salt water for 45 minutes! Would there be anything one could call squash after 45 minutes?
