|Betty Crocker's Party Book, 1960|
|You read it here! Garnishes should be edible! Grab fistfuls of that kale and parsley and chomp away! Betty deemed it acceptable so there's no reason to eat a Perfection Salad.|
|I am hard pressed to find a child who is intrigued by supper in little ribbon-tied boxes. With deviled eggs? They might be intrigued by what that horrible smell is coming from the boxes mother had ready in the refrigerator ahead of time.|
|The above picture shows how to make the below cakes. It's really that simple. Have a 5 year old draw the pattern, carve up a cake and decorate it like Snoopy. No other directions needed.|
|Just remember the garnishes are edible. BS to Betty. B.S.|
|There's no "although" about it. Don't kill yourself trying to have an Italian-Style Supper Party either. Just get your wallet and pull out some money. That's all they want. Don't kid yourself into thinking otherwise.|
|Ay, Jing-a-di-jing hee haw hee haw |
It's Dominick the Donkey.
jing-a-di-jing hee haw hee haw.
De Italian Christmas Donkey.
|Ummm, if you are a good hostess and have a bangin' party, then the only thing your guests are going to want for their New Year's Eve dinner is going to be the Clear Consomme. If you are that determined to serve them tomato aspic cubes over tossed greens then don't get butt hurt because nobody eats anything. Hangover food is not jiggly tomato aspic or a greasy crown roast of pork.|
|That pig is way too happy to be a roast suckling pig. Really, photographs would do this right. Not a cute little cartoon with a grinning pig and sharp utensils that are about to slice into it. The garnishes can be edible. Enjoy that necklace.|
|Does anybody know why Martha Washington loved nothing better than entertaining friends at Mount Vernon? Because she didn't have Betty Crocker books. That's why. This really is going all out for a day that isn't even a school holiday in most states.|
|And if I served this on February 18th or 26th will it make a difference?|
|Oh I know what you are thinking. What beautiful handcrafted eggs! They are nothing like what we do with colored vinegar water and a white crayon! I thought so too until I saw those smug little bunnies in the background.|
|Gil the fish model surrounds himself in potatoes and lemon while decoy Gil sits by and inflatable Gil looks downward.|
|Are these supposed to be cute little Easter decorations or a Zombie family? Should they be exclusive from one another?|
|What better way to honor our fallen by making a vegetable scarecrow that has absolutely nothing to do with Memorial Day.|
|Hate to break it to you, homophobe Betty of the archaic 1950s, but gay people can have normal picnic accessories. They can even have a normal picnic cloth. I know, shocking.|
|Either I am morbid or the artist who drew this picture is morbid because this does not look like a little girl unwrapping a present and finding a doll.|
|The Christmas spread that has been planned, cooked, organized, silver polished, candles lit. I don't know if the hostess expected her guests to be stick figures or if the stick figures expected real food. Quite a kerfuffle!|
|Don't you love how the groom is already asserting his dominance. He smiles sweetly and affectionately down at his new bride while gripping her arm. Here's to happily ever after!|
Now it is time to buffet myself to the point of self loathing!
Until next time! Have a great Sunday!
