Cheese Bake Lunch / Ovnsbakt Ostelunsj

A low-cal lunch recipe published by
Weight Watchers International in 1974Cheese Bake Lunch_post

Internet and colour printers became the death of the recipe card collections and to be honest they are not greatly missed. I have quite a few of these card boxes and ring folders in my collection of old recipes and cookbooks and really, they are far from pracical in use. In no time the ring folders get hard to leaf through and you need to be a lot tidier than me to put the cards back in their right place in the boxes.

But as you can see, I found a solution to that problem. I scanned the lot of them and ran the texts through ocr scanning. A lot more practical solution if you ask me – Ted 😉
