A Cookbook For Glampers & Campers

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I sent you a Coffee Cup note!  Part of that can be explained by decompression from the 5th Annual Blue Ridge Rally, a few trips to the Wee Cabin, a trip to Nashville this past week with Becky, and because I've only gotten intermittent emails from Tony about the Coffee Cup's progress.

Never in my wildest imagination would I have guessed it would take this long to complete her restoration.  When Tony said he was a perfectionist, he wasn't pulling my leg!  My last communication with him let me know that painting started June 1st and he was predicting he was two weeks away from finishing.  At this point all I can do is wait as patiently as humanly possible!

In the meantime, let me share a little eBay purchase I made last week.....Betty Crocker's 1961 Outdoor Cook Book.  I only paid $2.65 for it and with shipping, I still came in at under six bucks.  I plan to put it on a shelf in the Cup along with a few other vintage other ones I've found over the past months.  For all you glampers and campers out there, this just might be something you'll want too.  Check it out...

I hope you enjoyed seeing some pictures and recipes from this vintage outdoor cooking cook book.  Keep your fingers crossed for a road trip to Jackson, MI in the next few weeks!  I am SO ready to go pick up The Coffee Cup and start the last leg of this Java Journey.

P.S.....if you click on the picture it will enlarge, making it easier to read.....cheers!
