Thank you Marguerite for allowing me to see that the culinary fads in the United States in the 1960s weren't alone in this world.
My scanner rejected the hue of yellow that was used in these photographs so I had to tone it down a few shades. My blog is to entertain all of you with retro food and not burn your corneas. These cards have been the first time I have ever needed to do so. I'm not a fan of altering colors because I want them to be seen in their original form. Just trust me when I say they were obnoxiously bright!
Enjoy! If not for the entertainment but the fact I have completed picking through this collection.
|Upside down, right side up, to the left, to the right, what difference does this make? It's apples and ham in a loaf!!|
|Bacon triggers one sense of taste. Pears trigger another. Do they need to meet? I understand this is Canadian bacon and not the strips that we are used to eating. It doesn't matter though. These are two flavors that should not meet.|
|This would be a very, very big problem if we were talking about bacon strips.|
|What could possibly be wrong with this? It's a little hard to see the white chunks in there, but they are there. There's a filling made of bacon and a jelly with a boiled pigs foot. Still want a slice?|
|It's very important to put a big red cracker next to it. Otherwise people are going to get confused or pissed.|
|Veal Roll, gross. Prune and apple stuffing. Inexcusable. Are people constipated up in Canada?|
|My quest to find decent and edible looking Swedish Meatballs will still continue, I see. Though to call Swedish Meatballs "decent" or "edible" is a serious matter of opinion that I don't agree with in any way. But still, I will look for something that will change my mind.|
|Hello painful death by kidney and liver failure from eating poisonous toadstools. Hello Pedobear. Hello what looks like a penis cake.|
|In today's highly baconized society, this would probably be a brilliant idea. What bacon lover wouldn't want to eat liver and bacon in a stew together? I'm sorry. A Hot Pot.|
|If you look real close, you might see chicken hidden under that famous Marguerite Patten thick white sauce. You have to look real hard. Why it's not called "Chicken with white sauce", I don't know.|
|Is it a steak pie? If it is, what are you trying to hide? It can't look THAT bad, can it?|
|Erm, never mind. Let's just keep that bad boy closed.|
|This needed to be toned down. There was no other way to fully capture salami and hard boiled eggs with artfully cut radishes in a refreshing salad. No, I don't believe half the shit I write either. If I become descriptive enough, I can deflect from how this will smell in the refrigerator or on someone's breath.|
|In my tiny world, I would probably call those muffins with a fruit sauce. BAHAHA photobombed by a creepy clown!|
|No recipe card collection is complete without the obligatory sandwich loaf. How nice to cover the cream cheese frosting with peanuts. It doesn't hide the layers of filling that includes a pineapple and olive cream cheese, liver sausage with cream cheese, and a type of canned meat salad or cottage cheese.|
|It's essential to keep a pork loaf handy, wouldn't you agree?|
|Creepy ham and pineapple loaf with the pineapples embedded be damned. There's garlic bread. GARLIC BREAD!!!!!|
|There's an illusion this was actually half eaten. I don't buy it either.|
|This looks too much like the Chocolate Cottage of yesterday's post. Not very original. There's even marshmallow chimneys. Yawn. Hello snowmen.|
|I hope an adult didn't create this. Even a toddler would do better.|
Don't be too sad that I am done with this recipe card series. I promise there are a gazillion more!!
