I need to clarify I do not grab handfuls of recipe cards or cookbooks and stick my nose in them for a long sniff, like I can smell the hardboiled eggs or salmon mousse if I concentrated long and hard. These books and cards are over 30 years old and probably changed hands or sat in basements and only came out of storage after the owner died. There could be mold, mildew, cigarette smoke, residual food, cat piss, rodent shit, etc on the books. Some of them do smell their age.
Anyway, it's time...
|For crying out loud, just leave the hollowed out green pepper cups alone. Whomever decided to make green peppers or tomatoes into a vessel to hold other foods of stench is laughing at me.|
|Do you know what will accentuate the frozen french fried taters used in this recipe? Mustard. That's right. I needed a Sling Blade moment. I found it.|
|Baked beans don't HAVE to always be served from the bean pot. Did you know that? No? But you probably understand what happens after eating beans and hard boiled eggs. If my husband ate this, I would move out for a weekend, maybe even leave the state.|
|The mixture alone warns me to look elsewhere. Okay. I'm going to. I learned a lot about sour cream last post. Now I know it's in a mix and you just add water. I need time to think.|
|I bet this is also another calorie counting dish that won't be counted because it won't be created. Nothing against fish, but fish poached in pineapple juice seems a little weird. If I think it sounds weird, then you all know it's bad.|
|You know what would complete this? SAUCE. Less chopped spinach-cottage cheese mixture and more focus of some damn marinara.|
|Was asparagus really the answer in the 1970s? This entrée does not come close to "good eating".|
|Asparagus and Hollondaise sauce once again meet. Lest they do not forget their hardboiled egg sliced sidekick.|
|The most accurate description is this is "unlike most other salads." Yet it is just like most other salads.|
|This looks like it is covered in little tumors. Little pink fleshy tumors. Warts even.|
|There are some things that might be able to pull off having pizza sauce and cheese on top of it, but I do not think this is one of them.|
|I think if I am going to enjoy the favorite flavor combination of corned beef and cabbage, I would like to err on the side of normal and just eat it the plain boring way. But, if canned corn beef is not your forte, canned salmon can be substituted.|
|The description is more satirical than what I can offer. I don't know if I want to have to be innovative when it comes to leftover turkey. I'll just reheat it and eat it.|
