|My blogging area. That stack next to my laptop are blog entries that need to be born. Looks like I'm going to be doing this for a while!|
In 1963, there was a lot of hooplah about brunch. More so than today. People still do this, but there was a lot of radish cutting and gelatin molds if this book is any indicator of what brunch was like.
Time to proceed with another installation from Better Homes and Gardens.

|I can see this on someone's pinterest board acting like they discovered something brand new and clever! Looks like you are 49 years too late! Of course if I tried that, my pancakes would break apart or something.|
|Sometimes a color photo does these molds justice. Maybe it would in the sake of this tangy confetti relish mold. I prefer the monochromatic approach. If I imagined this had color, then I imagine it had life.|
|Have no fear! It turned out like it was supposed to. So well that radish garnishes, parsley and some "Perfect" potato salad. Life could not get any better for the hostess of this brunch.|
|I could leave a lot of comments about what this looks like but I'm going to leave it to your imagination.|
|This is busy too. Full and busy. You better really want those strawberries because it looks like the golden guard roosters will happily take your hand off to the middle of the forearm.|
|Don't get too close to that chicken disguised as a strawberry salt shaker. Are those fingers worth keeping for some kitschy brunch?|
I'll admit. This book was a lot of fun to go through. Not that I would ever cook anything from it.
