The rabbit doing the fan dance cracked me up. what a wonderful book. You know, there is a local food writer here who has mentioned reinventing these old cookbooks by making the recipes using organic, local and only the best ingrediants.

Love it! Although, the Beverages lady doesn't look like she's in much of a hurry... ;)

Those hot dog people are hilarious!

I love the hot dogs. I have a few books from that series but not this one.

These illustrations are great! A fan dancing bunny wha-? And, those hot dogs...hehehe...so many innuendos come to mind that my brain might explode! Tacky, I know. I think I like the appetizers page with the poodle the best, though.
Thanks for sharing!

I'm with Heather! I loved the bunny, but when I saw the hot dogs, I was absolutely amazed! WOW!

This is so strange-I have the same pamphlet...or at least I did until my son swiped it from me because he thinks it is so funny.

I did a post on it here:
