I was asked for a close up of the top shelf of the bookcase that I showed on yesterdays post ... so here you are 😀
It's my collection of wartime reading and ration cooking books, which I find really useful for budget or frugal recipes and which were mostly collected a couple of years ago when I did a Wartime rations Challenge and we both ate the same rations as a couple would have during World War Two here in the UK. It was fascinating and taught us both a lot.
I am currently teetering on the edge of making it a year long Challenge for next year. It was a healthy diet and a cheap one at that. I really enjoyed doing it for the simplicity of the food, I guess I could give it a modern twist in some way if I did it for a full year. We'll see.
Oh and I had this one on my bedside table so it missed being in the photos.
Hope that helps those of you who asked to see them in close up. Do many of you have any of these books and an interest in this era?
