Old recipe

I tried a recipe from 1898s cookbook, I bought it at a heritage bazaar few weeks ago.
I made 'brown stew of beef', it is quite simple recipe, describe well about ingredients and method, was taste classy.
I might add more color for the base but still tasted good!

I checked it out about the author's books on ebay and found some books are collectible.
The book is like all about in between cooking and house keeping,season of ingredients to how to serve the meals, even about the timings to serve. I didn't follow the timing etc, since it is for myself but would be nice to know for parties,I guess?

Since I was a child, I like to look at dictionaries or reference books.
I felt similar sensation when I look at the cookbook.
I can know how old time families lived through the book, even I don't have north american grandma!

Baby shower

I've attended baby shower only two times in my life.(the event isn't common in Japan)
Today was the second time, it was a big one, lots of balloon and gifts, cute treats, beautifully decorated the tables..

Kids were playing around, I think every kids are artists - their characters are so bold.
There's full of love at the party and wish the mom safely give birth her baby.

Bike cruising

I took bike ride for three hours today.
Biking through ocean and forest was so nice and I couldn't stop to ride.
..after an hour +half, I realized that I was tired and decided to go back home.
In a way to home, I saw an outside event at heritage square in the West end.
There's some vintage stuff seller and I bought two items.
One is an ants embroidered cloth and other is a cook book in 1898!
I want to compare the difference of cooking in 18century and nowadays.
