These slimmers' recipe cards from the 1970's might give you some inspiration.

Well, they made me laugh, anyway...

Thanks, Grace, this made my day! I laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes, especially at the ones under the link at the bottom, "Gallery of Regrettable Food." http://www.lileks.com/institute/gallery/index.html

To be frank, I far prefer eating a big plate of spaghettiicon_biggrin.gif.

Well, there goes my afternoon snack... Jul 23, 2004

I was thinking of having a bite to eat along with my cup of tea, but I don't think I'll bother now...

Thanks a bunch for introducing us all to the concept of mackereality! Suddenly makes my feeble attempts at cooking something interesting with a tin of tomatoes (again) look much more appetising.

Have a great weekend,

Pernille

Kraft recipes Jul 23, 2004

Does anybody remember the Kraft recipe commercials that ran in the '60s (late '60s, I was a little kid, okay?) on Sunday nights during the Ed Sullivan Show featuring such lovelies as Kraft Mayonaise Tuna Casseroles?

No party was complete without some mother serving Jello Cubes and Marshmallows Salads.

Kraft re-ran those commercials in the early 70s, too Jul 23, 2004

Ha-ha, Sylvie, I was just thinking about that. I remember those Kraft "party dishes" on the Sonny & Cher show (I was a little kid, too!). I remember hating the ads because they were boring, we only ever saw the lady's hands with her boring beige nail polish, and the narrator's voice was boring, too. I couldn't appreciate the incipient humour at the time, trembling like a big jello mold lest my mother decide to serve up the stuff herself.

Fortunately, she did not.

Unfortunately, I cannot view the pictures on the first link mentioned above, though I did get to look at the Regrettable Food one. You know, I think buried in boxes in the basement I have a few of those jewels myself, passed down from my mother-in-law.;-)
