Ms. Icemeister was searching for a recipe for one of our old favorites...Syrian Beef Stew. It was one she got from her mother 40 years ago and was searching today for other similar ones online.

Well miraculously, Google found an exact copy of the one her mother had given her in the archives of the St. Petersburg Times from April 1966.

To have that dish once again will be great, but what also caught my eye was all the old newspaper ads....especially the supermarket ads.

T-Bone Steak for 89 cents/lb! Chicken for 19 cents/lb!

BTW....The stew recipe is on p.58.
