It's Classic Recipe Monday!

I really do like cooking, when you have the time, not feeling rushed and your not under a deadline. It's never a happy scene when you get in from work and you have a family of two glaring at a empty table, but glancing up at a bookcase filled with all kinds of cookbooks.

My family seems to think I should be a gourmet chief with all the cook books I buy, but I know there has to be others like me out in blogland, who simply love reading cook books! It is very relaxing!

I am aware that on all blogs, we all love it when there is a schedule of events planned for every day. It gives us something to look forward to, plus it gives us a stable feeling deep down inside, that our favorite blog will never run out of material to write about, because they have a subject planned for everyday! You must admit, I am right!

Welcome to Classic Recipe Monday,here at Frugal Southern Mom, (plus it will give me another opportunity to browse through all my beloved cookbooks). Let's give it some thought, could you pass up a .39 cent vintage cookbook at a thrift store?  I doubt it! 

This is a favorite one, (ok, there all favorites), It's called the 50th Anniversary Cookbook, it was put out by the Chelsea Church of God in 1984, .39 cents, a great bargain at the thrift store!

The recipes are simple and easy. Here is a selection of recipes for your enjoyment or to cook, but first, Thanks to the folks who worked so hard to put this cookbook out, Chelsea Church of God!

"Super Wubble is up to four times stronger and more tear-resistant than the original Wubble Bubble Ball. Made with a new super stretchy material called Xpandium, it’s super smashable and super squashable. Bounce it, throw it, kick it, smoosh it, smash it, even sit on it!"

My family took the Super Wubble Bubble Ball on this past weekend! We opened the box and found the instructions were simple to read and follow. It came with an air machine to blow it up, one patch in case of a puncture and a Vaseline like jelly to rub on the bubble to make blowing it up easier.

Once we blew it up,(and yes it will blow up to 3 feet), the fun started! It was bounced on each other, thrown up in the air and placed on head's to fit like a hat! It with stood being bounced against the house and kicked across the front pasture,(we live in the country with acreage) by the time we gave it all we had, it looked like a very dirty, brown dusty huge inflated 3 foot pink ball! Yes it withstood all the fu…
