I've picked and chosen this week's best recipe cards. I'm taking the McCall's route. It's been Better Homes and Gardens and Betty Crocker overload the past few weeks.
As long as I have a gazillion recipe cards, I have a Sunday blog post. I guess from a hypothetical standpoint, as long as I have a gazillion recipe cards, my family won't starve either.
These are from McCall's Great American Recipe Card Collection, 1973. I wasn't around to experience this time in our culture.
|When we look back at our heritage, it's not going to be what we did or how we got there. It's going to be baked corn pudding with its chopped pimentos and thick, curdled mess.|
|As if fruitcake is not creepy enough, there has to be a creepy, vacant eye doll staring in the background.|
|Oh, Gil..What have you done to yourself? How did you find your way down this sad road as a fish model? Maybe it's just time to gather what is left of your dignity..|
|If this is an upside down chili pie, I don't know if I want to see the other side.|
|I'm hard pressed to find someone who will eat guacamole by the spoonful out of a hollowed tomato.|
|Nothing like a good beef broth sipper to take your mind off what really matters in the world. You all should try it sometime. And when you do, let me know how that works out.|
And now you all can go about your Sunday. Perhaps it is better enriched knowing about guinea pig back pustules or tartare with raw egg on top of it. Maybe before you go to sleep, you can think of the fruit cake doll watching you..
