Mid-Century Monday: Cooking Tips From the 1940s

Today the hubs and I will be packing up the car, and by 5:30 a.m. tomorrow morning we'll be heading to my hometown of St. Louis for Thanksgiving. That means today is a busy, busy day, but I certainly can't leave you without a little mid-century inspiration for those of you who will be prepping and cooking all week for Thursday's feast!

I found this hilarious (only because it's ridiculously sexist) video via Bon Appetit of poor Marjorie, a 1940s newlywed trying her inexperienced hand at cooking for her new husband, Tim. It was produced by the University of Kansas to help "demystify" cooking terms, and I don't know about you, but I'm SO glad they helped me understand what it means to "stir" something. :)
