I've always enjoyed the little leaflet cookbooks that the flour and yeast companies provide us with from time to time.
I'm so glad that my mom kept a few of the oldies for me.
They prove that some things are timeless. . .
I'm sometimes amused to see that things that are touted as "new methods" in recipes today. . are in the old little leaflets.
When I saw the Robin Hood Flour bag celebrating 100 years. .
I thought it might have been nice of them to send the flour to the stores in some flour sacks. . .
and make the bag "green". A flour sack to celebrate 100 years. . . would be worth making into a tea towel.
I did feel a sense of Canadian pride in what our farmers have produced over the years.
When my Grandparents imigrated from Russia . .
they were allowed to come to Canada with the understanding that they would clear land in the prairies. ..and grow wheat.
The first farming that my Dad did was in the prairies.
Canada has hard wheat that makes fantastic flour.
Just another reason to feel a little Canadian pride.
I think I'll pull out my bag of flour. . .
and do some baking. . .
You know me. . .I'm all about celebrating.
