Patio Daddy-O


The 1950's was a time when backyard grilling came into
it's prime.  While this little book is not technically vintage yet ...





The recipes inside certainly are.




I started collecting these vintage trays.  I have Oregon, Wyoming
and Ohio (where both of my parents were born)
Sadly, I don't have Idaho yet.  But hey
Oregon is only 50 miles away!




It's hot here ...
so stay cool Daddy-O!!!

I am heading over to ~

and

Shall I add an ice cube to your water Bentley???

Love,
Susan and Bentley

  29. Now I'm quickly starting to feel a little old. "Vintage" and "90s" being used in the same sentence? Oh my. :)

    Cute post, Susan.
